Do Not Track: Privacy Considerations
Excerpt: Microsoft‘s announcement that the next version of its web browser would feature “do not track” by default has revived this privacy debate. How should privacy professionals approach this discussion?…Trevor Hughes, president and CEO of the International Association of Privacy Professionals, says that the recent Microsoft announcement highlights that there are no rules that say it’s deceptive or misleading to not pay attention to a “do not track” browser. “But the interesting thing about ‘do not track’ is, without an enforcement mechanism, it’s a ‘please do not track’ indicator,” he says in an interview with Information Security Media Group’s Tom Field.
