Privacy in America used to be a thing.  In contemporary terms, privacy has gave way to security, delays at the airport, internet insecurity and phone taps for every American.  And the beat goes on. 

Google, Yahoo and Microsoft and every other internet service provider and technology company has had to assemble whole teams to deliver information to governments around the world including the United States government.   As the world continues to get smaller, American companies are more and more doing business with companies off-shore.  And those business connections could lead to you being investigated.
