OptOutPreScreen.com’s Privacy Policy lacking?

Garrett Fitzgerald pointed out the site OptOutPreScreen.com which supposedly will get you off the credt-card-offer-each-week merry-go-round. I’d welcome that. But Ed Foster voices his concerns in OptoutPrescreen.com’s Privacy Policy that not all of the subscribers to this site might respect your wishes – but they will use the personally identifiable information you supply. Ed concludes:

But doesn’t it strike you that there’s something very bass-ackwards about this process? Why should we have to opt out at all from having sensitive information shared with every two-bit loan shark that’s willing to pay the credit report companies for it? In this era of rampant identity theft, it just shouldn’t work that way.
