In the dark

May as well be stored in a locked filing cabinet, in a disused lavatory with beware of the leopard sign. Because they have not told anyone.
If they wanted to tell people they would have mailed everyone the form and web page address. Also the mail would explain what they were going to do, who gets access, security safeguards to protect privacy etc.
But letting the public know what is going on is the last thing they want, can't risk the plebs making an informed decision and saying no. Best to keep them in the dark.
