Random possibly dumb question.

I get real paranoid episodes about various things like people stealing data and the like. I am having one now. BT don't look through data for no real reason do they? Like search history and login details etc. Thats a Data Protection thing right?

BT don't look for no reason but all your searches and use of the Internet is recorded somewhere. 

If you visit a site then at the very least your IP address is logged. Some sites also log other information such as which browser you're using, what your operating system is, and so on. Which pages you view, how long you spend on them, and which site/page you came from to view it may also be logged.

The only time you should worry is if your searches are anything that could be deemed slightly dodgy. Like hard-core **bleep** or anything terrorist related.
You could then expect a knock on your front door.

Your internet browsing history is the least of your worries.

They now have the technology to read you thoughts through your wi-if and no tin foil hat can stop it.

Not a particularly appropriate response to someone who has opened his post with "I get real paranoid episodes about various things ...", is it?
