There is a Massive effort underway to document every residential and commercial building in the entire U.S.
Be warned by going to their website you will receive no less than 6 cookies, (I do not know if they are tracking cookies or not,) which can be removed in Firefox but I am not sure about the procedure with IE or Apple.
While I was at home yesterday an older man with a camera was standing in the street taking pictures of the neighbors house and asked me for the address. I told him I did not know, then I asked him why he was taking pics anyway, He showed me his ID Tag from ZAIO, he explained he was contracted by ZAIO to take pics of all properties in the area, he himself has been in real estate here in town for 35 years.
I did some research through their carefully worded website. These people are spooky as hell. First of all, they are based in Canada, the company is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, they are BIG money boys, former financial execs, not Democrats.
They are hiring people through real estate firms to photograph every single house on every single street in America, referring to our houses as "public domain". and ripe for the picking to "aid Law Enforcement and Search and Rescue" in addition to documenting every single address and putting a picture there to make it easy to find by who knows who! And keep it all in a "Secure Database" for their perusal and money making schemes.
I do not trust these people. This is spooky. they go around during the day when people are at work taking pictures of peoples homes with license plate numbers and what ever else the camera catches. People do not know they have been put into an enormous database, there is NO formal notification, only if you personally ask one of theses "photogs" will you even know what is happening. The website does have an opt out page, but how do you opt out and CAN YOU opt out, there is no proof you have been removed, no accountability operating from Canada Eh?
Questions remain, why is a Canadian company allowed to gather information on Americans' residences, names, addresses, etc.? What is being done with the information? Who can access this information and for what reason? Is there some other unknown purpose for this information that we are not being told? And how would we know? Is this "offshore" attempt at hiding information gathering being done to avoid accountability to US law?
Why is this project being done in semi-secrecy? If I would not have inquired as to what that mans' purpose taking pics, I would not even know this program existed.
Go HERE to see for yourself.
Maybe I'm just being paranoid, maybe not.
You are on candid camera and being added to an extensive database whether you like it or not.
