Conclusion

I guess that we don’t have any right to any privacy considering all the information that companies collect about us nowadays?

If you happen to live in the European Union, you have the right to request a company to provide all the information they have collected about you. I have contemplated to do with all airlines and hotel companies that I tend to frequent. Would be entertaining to read comments they may have on file.
