"What are you collecting" is different from "What did you collect" and "What privacy should be applied to what is collected".
EFF/ACLU is asking for B which is the wrong question. A and C are far more important without knowing exactly what is collected.
Here's a scenario:
You're interviewing for a new job. You drive to the company to interview on site. While you're on your way, the police tag your car in various spots along your trip including the parking lot of the site. Now under normal circumstances, that data would be private and not released without court order (yes, fantasy land, but bear with me) so your trip remains private and after some period of time those records are expunged.
Now say that the EFF and ACLU get their way and have all that data released. All your movements are now considered public record available for review by anyone. Do you want your boss pouring through your movements?
