"Private EVV data is repurposable and can be used to harm or profit"

From Jake Metcalf's When Verification is Also Surveillance

"Collecting information about one group can lead to increased control over another group because data is easily repurposable.  This effect of data collection is often overlooked.  Debates about consumer privacy have largely missed the fact that firms' ability to develop a better understanding of consumers also impacts workers' day-to-day experiences, their job security, and their financial well-being."
