It's likely to emerge that there was a good technical reason to collect the data (although storing it in this way might have been unfortuitous). Nevertheless, this does point to a very important privacy point - even for things we would deem to be "primary purposes" (that is, we need the data to do something the user has asked us to do), if we are not clear about how data is collected and used, we run the risk of this kind of negative reaction when perfectly innocuous data activities are made public. This is when we mean in the privacy specialist community when we talk about the buzzword of transparency.
