Privacy Rights Clearinghouse
Along with Privacy Activism (www.privacyactivism.org), Electronic Frontier Foundation (www.eff.org), PrivacyActivism (www.privacyactivism.org), C.A.S.P.I.A.N (www.nocards.org) and other groups, the PRC submitted formal comments to the Privacy Office of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, urging it to stop development of a proposed airline passenger screening program administered by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The program, called the Computer Assisted Passenger Pre-Screening System (CAPPS II), will allow travel authorities to access personal information about each passenger from government and commercial databases. The groups state that the program violates consumers' rights and doesn't improve safety.
