That depends upon which country you're sitting, buying etc...

In Europe, the EU Data Protection Directive give's you some rights. In
the US I'm not aware of any such law.

You might want to consider your preferred attorney to find out more
about your very specific question, which has not that much to do with
online privacy, but privacy in general. 

The list you were writing to is for questions about P3P, the Platform
for Privacy Preferences. We haven't the ressources to answer all
questions about privacy in general that might appear. 

Best,
