    Key point is the "government".

    Sort of like "freedom of speech" applies only to the government.

    How many people read those End User License Agreements? I know I don't. I could have signed my life away a few dozen times over and not even know it.

    Do either of you have the E-Z Pass "thingy" in your car? If so you are being tracked and don't even know it.

    Those are limited to "hold harmless" agreements.

    No I do not. I do have a smartphone though so I assume I am being tracked.

    I have one but it's only for going around Chicago. They can track it in my kitchen drawer in Wisconsin the rest of the time. Only criminals worry about being tracked.
