The government can know any and everything about you.

King County using customer grocery store data to target pet owners, send licensing notices

I am not against dog licenses.

Instead, the county said they pay the company who pays stores such as Safeway and QFC for access to customer data contained in every one of those reward card swipes.
"This is a cost effective and we feel, less intrusive way of reminding people of the requirement and benefits of pet licensing," said Satterfield.
However, Safeway says King County is wrong,
Safeway tells KOMO News that it does not provide data on its customers to third parties.
That is right Safeway, just like Google, Facebook, and Yahoo! all said they don't provide data to the government, just like the AT&T and Verizon said they don't provide data to the government.
