Since there is no personal information attached, I don't see how on the
of it this is a privacy violation. I want to take this concern
but I need more to go on than "this is inherent". Can you elaborate?
That's not how you need to think of it.
Basically, the European definition is that if it can be correlated to
personal information, it *is* personal information, regardless of what
the original info is in isolation.
That means that if you want it not to be personal info, you need to make
bloody sure it is not shared with data aggregators, your protect against
leaking to systems that allows correlation, and every time there is an
advance in big data processing that enables more kinds of correlation,
that automatically restricts what you can safely collect.
