The consumers´ right to privacy on the Internet

*

“Setting Boundaries for Internet Privacy”, by KEVIN O´BRIEN, on The International Herald Tribune and The New York Times, a report about the European regulator´s pressure to control the tracking of consumer Internet surfing habits by companies. The European Commission has been considering how to put into practice a 2009 law that regulates software cookies, the unique digital markers that Web sites place on visiting computers to identify consumers and deliver ads tailored to individual interests. Consumer advocates hope to insert an opt-in mandate in the revision of the European Union´s Data Protection Directive, the main body of privacy law, which will be considered next year.
