I suspect that information will be (mostly) about the corporation, not the employee.  Even in the case of a start-up founder (whose identity is closely aligned with the corporate purpose, at least temporarily), that founder is usually acting as an agent of the corporation.  A profile of an employee deep in the throes of their professional work will tend to capture their profession, not their humanity.  But the employee's _fashion_, well, that's another story.  Roger's cf is closer to the intent of advertising and spamming profilers (which is ostensibly why we care about ISPs selling our traffic info).

I get all these advertisements for things like knock outs, cell lines, compounds, and lab equipment despite my (almost utter) lack of interest in such.  I presume it reflects my googling as well as the rest of my online footprint (my name on some journal articles).  That would be akin to inducing predicates for confidential info, I think.  E.g. say your profile indicates you may be familiar with intelligence assets in Eastern Europe.  But your fashions tend toward cowboy hats and country music.  My guess is that the "Eastern Europe" profile is less about you and more about your profession, whereas your fashion predicates are more about you.  Are we defined by our jobs?
