Interestingly there must be more intelligence related to this.  When searching for hotels you often find that the next hotel site is pre-populated with your previous search date, but if you go to peapod to order groceries it does not presume you want delivery on your trip date. So maybe there is a way to make the tools more context dependent?

Subject: Tracking names and emails across sites

FYI,

Tracking personal identifiable information across sites.

In You're not anonymous. I know your name, email, and company.
At http://42floors.com/blog/youre-not-anonymous-i-know-your-name-email-and-company/

I've learned that there is a "website
intelligence" network that tracks form submissions across their customer network.  So, if a visitors fills out a form on Site A with their name and email, Site B knows their name and email too as soon as they land on the site.
