Domino's Pizza has a customer database which they are making available to the NYC Police Department and to collection agencies(!!!). Presumably they charge a fee to the collection agencies.
According to CNET news . . .
Rambam also gets information from marketing databases that gather information on people's buying habits and preferences from frequent-customer cards, surveys, product registrations, actual transactions, and other activities.
Marketing databases with vast amounts of personal records are being purchased by the government, he said. At the same time, individuals have less power to learn what information is being gathered on them and how it is being used, because private entities are exempt from the Freedom of Information Act, he added.
"Domino's has built the biggest consumer database in America," and the U.S. Marshals Service, the New York Police Department and collection agencies are using it to track people down, Rambam said.
A creepy story. Once Dunkin' hears about this, they will have a new revenue source. They could even sell their spy photos of franchisees.
