    that is perfectly legal, I think.

    Let's say they have a hunch you might be involved in criminal/terrorist activity. There's laws on the books now that let them go to the companies and demand the info.

    The issue is that they are pre-emptively buying the info, without cause to believe we're involved in any criminal activity.

    Yeah, the data-mining, on the part of the company, is part and parcel of its business. It's the selling it to the government that raises red flags.
