Technologically possible, but legally questionable. To my knowledge, the amount of such tracking the major players do is limited and not too controversial. If you have any *factual, contrastable and reliable* information in this sense (e.g., from legal proceedings), I'd be glad to know.
TL;DR: because you can. 🙂
