URL: http://garrickvanburen.com/, http://thingelstad.com/,
The push for free online services and apps have given rise to an ecosystem of organizations that track, cross-reference, compile, and then resell you to advertisers.
- The federal government and the California state government are debating new privacy bills that would limit the collection and sharing of customer information.
- The FTC called for a Do Not Track system similar to the Do Not Call system for telemarketers.
- Microsoft, Apple, and Firefox have all added ‘Do Not Track’ functionality to the next version of their browsers.
In this session we’ll discuss the issue of online privacy, customer information collection, tracking, and then demo some solutions.
