What makes you think that they defend/advocate privacy? The ongoing
debate on this side of the Atlantic:

Even if they did, only a limited audience would get access. You can't
use extralegal information in court. Noticed that simplified logic of
either private/safe or public/unsafe here before. If I don't lock my
house or use an unsafe mechanism to lock it (like 99.99% of the
population) that doesn't mean anyone is invited to enter and seize my
property.
