The Post learned Hooked on Phonics, a learn-to-read program, is actively renting its customer file at a rate of $95 per 1,000.

Privacy policies. Interesting little devils, aren't they? Nearly every commercial Web site has one, yet no two are the same. No legal entity is charged with policing companies to ensure they're in compliance with their privacy policies nor punishing companies that violate their policies. And consumers rarely read them. I'm guilty as charged on this account.
