Who's been joining their databases?

My local supermarket and my favourite airline write to tell me that if I use their new supermarket loyalty card, I can earn valuable miles on the airline. Well, that's nice and creepy. Now my airline knows what I eat, and my supermarket knows where I fly to. How long before everyone just merges all their databases together into one giant blob of sinister privacy violating orwellian nightmare?

Nah, they'll probably try and join it all together in MS Access and then violate the 2GB database size limit. So you're safe... for now.
