      Privacy International has released a review of how privacy is
      protected in the European Union members and other countries. IP says
      it's the most comprehensive survey of global privacy so far. Germany
      is rated the best with a score of 3.9, China the worst (1.3).
      Slovakia (2.5) is in the middle, and the US (2.0) about three-quarters
      down among the 37 rated countries.

      Slovakia is rated particularly good in the constitutional protection
      category, and as middling in most others.

      The US is rated particularly good in the communications data retention
      category and in democratic safeguards, and among the worst in the
      categories of statutory protection, privacy enforcement,
      communications interception, workplace monitoring, travel-finance
      surveillance, and leadership.
