Lawmakers need to pass legislation protecting consumers, children and business professionals from data driven technology providers who employ predatory surveillance and data mining business practices.

I have already submitted copies to numerous Senators and Representatives.
Technology providers such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon and other technology providers are exploiting technology users for financial gain at the expense of civil liberties, privacy, cyber security and safety whether the user is an adult, child or business professional.
