You may not make much of it at the time, but it turns out that most Canadian retailers are recording your personal information.
A new survey for Ottawa's privacy commissioner finds that 97 percent of Canadian companies surveyed last year, collected your personal data including your name, address and phone number. That's up from 63 percent in 2007.
When it comes to dealing with possible security breaches like the "heartbleed bug", only half of the businesses said they were concerned.
The report states that Canadian businesses are becoming less worried about data breaches that involve customer information.
4 percent of the companies who took part in the survey say they needed to see a warrant before handing over personal data belonging to their customers. Out of that group, half say they gave the information away without any documentation.
Another 13 percent say they hand over customer personal data 'some of the time'.
The survey was conducted by Phoenix Strategic Perspectives in November of 2013.
1,006 companies across Canada took part in the survey.
