A: I am guessing you want to know if giving out your personal number was wrong. It was. I'm not sure what you would like to do about it. You should go to whomever the supervisor is that was part of this disclosure of your private information. Ask or tell them do take action to stop it. If you wish to go further, you could go up the chain-of-command and get someone in trouble or punished.

Any further action on your part would require you to spend good money. If it is not having any real consequences. Then tell whomever to stop.
