Now, maybe I'm getting too into that paranoid world but in today's day and age of Big Data, I would bet heavily that this type of data is collected and assembled. Govt officials would say "don't worry - its only meta data." But just the fact that citizens are viewed with suspicion is what is intolerable, in my opinion.
It's even easier than that these days. Just access one of the tracking cookies from the ad sites and you got plenty of information about who accessed what sites and what they looked at.
