Phone location data from people who visited abortion clinics, including Planned Parenthood, was legally on sale for $160, report says - https://www.businessinsider.com/planned-parenthood-abortion-clinic-data-broker-sale-report-says-2022-5
"Companies that package and sell on people's phone data can legally sell on location data from abortion clinics, Vice reported.
Vice bought a dataset from a data brokering company called Safegraph. Data brokers are companies that collect people's personal data, assign it to specific profiles, then sell it on.
Vice bought a dataset from Safegraph for $160, which included a week's worth of phone location data for 600 Planned Parenthoods in the US. Not every Planned Parenthood provides abortion services but Vice reported that it verified some of the locations included in the dataset do."
