Agency Proposes Privacy as Default for Online Data

Wednesday Dec 1st 2010 by Staff

The FTC has proposed that consumers have a "do not track" option to protect their online privacy.

NY Times: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has proposed new rules to govern the commercial use of consumers' online data. The report calls for giving consumers control over how their data is used. Privacy would be the default option, and consumers could opt to join a "do not track" list.

Experts say that the agency does not have the authority to enact all the rules it has proposed and will need Congress to pass laws in order to do some of the things contained in the proposal.
