Gee, is anyone out there surprised by this?
Here’s the thing – when you share your information with a company – any company, they view that information as one of their assets. As far as they are concerned, they own it, not you. This also includes any information any company can collect on you through legal means. Our laws (in the U.S. – it isn’t as bad in Europe and a few other regions) fully support this business model.
In the case of Clear, this includes biometrics (fingerprint and iris scan) – never mind all the financial data and the background checks they ran.
But don’t worry; they’ll only sell it to another registered traveler company. Trust them.
