As to point 2, the entire legislation enacted on the basis of the EU
"privacy" directive and concerning *public* personal data processing
is exclusively aimed at such goals, in the sense of preventing such
activities to be put at the service of private interests, and/or
checking that they are not.

As long as the State's own interests are served, everything is game.
