I found this little gem, below...
see url:https://www.cia.gov/library/reports/Policy-and-Procedures-for-CIA-Signals-Intelligence-Activities.pdf

<<<The collection of foreign private commercial information or trade secrets is authorized only to protect the national security of the United States or its partners and allies.
It is not an authorized foreign intelligence or counterintelligence purpose to collect such information to afford a competitive advantage to U.S. companies and U.S. business sectors commercially. Certain economic purposes, such as identifying trade or sanctions violations or government influence or direction, shall not constitute competitive advantage.>>>

What a nice, benign organisation...looking after the interests of the people and state using the highest standards of privacy. You read it here first folks...:-) .
P.S. Considerations of dual or multiple use is just not part of their scenario or intentions...apparently...
