Anonymous Data of Consumers

Very interesting survey by localcircles in economic times today. Businesses are split about sharing their customers anonymised data with Govt. I am curious who are willing to share? What if tomorrow the Govt at center misuses it? Why would you want to share at all unless you are not running a business. What happens to consumers consent?

There is a difference between the government and the citizen to share personal data or privacy, but the same must not be shared by the government with the private parties in business of sorts even with consent. Privacy of the individual must be secured and honoured by the Government unless demand for judicial inquest which, too, has to be given in confidence and in cover. more  
We give out data to businesses with no reservations - despite the fact that the businesses are MNCs with HQs outside India and maybe sharing the same data with their governments, without even protecting your identity. It is generally agreed that the US government more or less has personal data of netizens across the world including personal profiles on FB.

But somehow our government we are suspicious of.

It is strange that the same startups who do not want to share anonymous data with government, want permission to share data with overseas entities and this may not even be anonymous. This is double standards and hypocrisy at its best. more  
Anonymised data is just that. It is anonymous. Therefore no one is at risk of being 'snooped on'!

Left wingers always try to create scares about everything the Government does, and try to fool the people. more  
What is wrong in our own elected Govt knowing about its citizens? It will help formulating plans as they the citizens prefer or wish, as well as prevent misuse finace more  
Data is no more secure. It changes hands, gets analysed, targeted, profiled and all of the thing together.
I'd trust my government ore than the companies for data. and if you don't want to share data - get off the net or all social media sites and platforms.Then use privacy tools and apps and OS like /e/ for you smartphone. then you may SLOW the data leak not completely eradicate it. more
