Walmart favors 'reasonable controls' over collection and use of personal data

WMT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Walmart Inc <WMT.N> for the first time on Wednesday revealed the breadth of customer information it collects as it came out in favor of consumers having "reasonable controls" with regard to collection, use and sharing of personal data.

More than a dozen privacy bills have been introduced in Congress and concerns have mounted over how information is being collected and used especially by big tech companies.

WMT

A coalition of gun-reform advocacy groups on Wednesday released a scorecard that gives letter grades to 29 retailers based on their in-store gun policies, their public stance on gun safety and their donations to top National Rifle Association-backed politicians.
