Over at the Gripe Line Weblog, Ed Foster has a few choice words to say about the new privacy notice that he received from Orbitz. He's not pleased that only Californians have a right to know what info the company has about them, thanks to that state's more stringent privacy laws. Anyone living in any other state in the union gets to go pound sand, I guess. Also, he's not happy that they get to provide all his personal information to anybody they darn well please, for any other purpose:
