Electoral Roll

"...trawl publicly available databases such as the electoral roll to find out more information about you"

At least you can opt out of the publicly-available electoral roll (although I don't understand why you have to opt out annually - surely you have opted out because you don't want to be bombarded with junk mail etc., so why would you change your preference year-by-year)
