They will share it with everyone and anyone whenever they want.
VERY good point.
Every signature the Congregation can gather, every report a member submits to them and every committee you agree to attend is evidence that you :
"... still accepts the congregations authority." from Shepherd the Flock book
PHOEBE- I agree with all of the other posters views here. Let's never forget this fact- most JW's are nosy busybody's who do not honor personal, private boundaries of their fellow JW's - or anyone else's boundaries for that matter. And what's the reason they act that way ? It comes down from the top of this WT organization as we are so abundantly seeing right now with this data retrieving crap going on towards JW's.
Any advantage or access to personal information that gives WT leaders and WT legal department power & control over your private information is always to THEIR legal advantage - not the rank & file JW's advantage. Just more methods of control. You are smart not to comply with this demand put on you. Good luck, keep your freedom from them dear to you ! Peace out, Mr. Flipper
Thank you, everyone!
you all gave me amazing advice, I’m so grateful.

It's so blinding obvious! Why didn't I pick up on that?
Because the lack of confidentiality is so commonplace among JW's the elder who asked his wife to chase you up didn't even think about it!
"...an unauthorized elderette"
Is there any other kind of elderette besides unauthorized ones?
That maybe a good comment to respond with, sister how did you know these items were not update? I thought all information was for the elders eyes only? Since it seems as though it’s ok with the elders to share private info with their wives I have decided to decline your request. My information is between myself my god and my doctor.
There is no judicial committee for not keeping forms up to date. Members don't technically have to have blood cards.
Yes, ignore it.
Even replying, will imply that they have some kind of impact or authority over you.
Ignoring them shows that they have NO control or authority over you.
