Privacy watchdog to probe Oz gov's right to release personal info 'to correct the record'

No they don't. It is pretty much impossible to exist in the free West without interacting with government or its agents. Such interactions are either mandatory, backed by penalties or require you to accept onerous terms and conditions - including the right to share information. It's the demographics - we have another 20 or 30 years of this crap.
