The Federal Trade Commission recently found some “provocative” trends concerning online companies:

Privacy policies are not a good enough way to tell people what information is being collected about them.

The privacy of users is not necessarily protected because a system doesn’t capture names or other “personally identifiable information.”

– The industry’s self-regulation has not been adequate.

Internet companies have not cooperated with the commission to provide enough information on what is happening now with data about users.
