Why Do We Need to Know Information About Anyone's Sex Life?

The information sharing system the US Department of Homeland Security has with the Europeans is about to be updated and it will require they share highly sensitive personal data, revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, and information concerning the health or sex life of European passengers.

The US will be able to hold the records of European passengers for 15 years compared with the three-year limit now in place. The EU parliament is concerned the sharing of this information will lead to "a significant risk of massive profiling and data mining, which is incompatible with basic European principles and is a practice still under discussion in the US congress."
