yes! they do! But only at Wal-Marts and other stores of that size. Not many people know about this but they are tracking your behavior to build a case on you!!they have secret RFID tags in the can. They set off an alarm you cant hear. it triggers special cameras that film you as you leave. and all your information from the card you use gets recorded. So all your purchases get Logged. and compared to the dates of previous photos of your work. its a real simple piece of technology actually If you don't believe me. Look at this article!
Here are some facts first!
Who is in the list? Sherwin Williams! What do they make? Krylon! And what website other website does Krylon run??? http://www.graffitihurts.org/
they have an agenda. But not ours.They are not worth supporting.
but they are not worth racking either.......
RFID “Spychips” Threaten Consumer Privacy

In the coming months as you walk into your favorite store(s) without your knowledge or consent the store knows who you are, your spending habits, your credit history, and other intimate details that no one should know but you.
How can this happen you ask? Well, with the advance in technology there are computer chips that are embedded in our credit cards, clothing, and products we buy. These chips are called RFID or Radio Frequency Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
This is a controversial technology that uses tiny microchips to track items from a distance. These RFID microchips have earned the nickname “spychips” because each contains a unique identification number, like a Social Security number for things, that can be read silently and invisibly by radio waves.
If you’ve read the book Spychips, you know that our worst consumer privacy nightmare is for those little anti-theft tags (known in the industry as “EAS” tags) to someday be combined with individually trackable RFID chips and slipped into consumer products. Well, those tags are now here.
An article in an RFID Journal (posted below), reveals that Checkpoint Systems has actually developed a product tag that combines anti-theft and RFID tracking capabilities. The tags were paraded out at the RFID Journal Live! Conference in Orlando, Florida. What’s more, Sensormatic, Checkpoint’s only serious competitor, is running a whole conference session to describe the benefits of using this combined tracking technology.
This is beyond a doubt the #1 most important — and dangerous — development in the consumer privacy arena today. It means consumers may soon be buying, wearing, and carrying products tagged with RFID at the item level, because Checkpoint and Sensormatic specialize in hiding anti-theft tags deep inside of products, then distributing those products to nearly a million retail locations worldwide.
Now they want to do the same thing with RFID spychips. If they are not stopped, Checkpoint and Sensormatic will soon be hiding these dual-use tracking devices in your belongings, where they will be able to silently and secretly transmit information about you to marketers, criminals,
and the government.
This will be a consumer privacy nightmare — and no one will even know it’s happening. That’s because industry lobbyists have prevented RFID labeling legislation from passing anywhere in the nation. There is no requirement that retailers or manufacturers tell us when they’re hiding RFID tags in our clothes, shoes, books, or anything else.
Our only protection against this threat is the strength of our voices –and the power of our protests.
Below is a list of relevant companies that attended the RFID Journal Live conference in Orlando. They heard from Sensormatic and Checkpoint what a good idea it would be to start hiding RFID tags in the individual items you buy. Please look over the list, and if you see a company you buy from, tell them politely but firmly that if you catch them using RFID at the item level you will not only boycott their company, but you will tell everyone you know to boycott them, too.
