Web privacy tools to warn of internet tracking cookies
Posted in: Legal & Security at 15/11/2011 19:08
Internet users will receive a warning if sites do not respect their privacy thanks to new tools being developed by the web's standards setting body.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) wants to help users control how their personal data is managed.
It is designing controls to shield personal data and reveal when sites do not honour privacy requests.
The W3C now wants users, browser makers and businesses to help finish and implement the specifications.
