UK government allows ISPtargeting by Phorm despite EU concerns
But any future deployments of the system must be done with consent and make it easy for people to opt out. Phorm intends to launch soon in the U.K. with Internet service providers BT Group, TalkTalk and Virgin Media. The Key Sentences:
• User profiling is done only with the knowledge and agreement of the customer
• The profile is based on a randomly allocated unique ID, so there is no need to know the identity of the individual users
• Phorm does not keep a record of sites visited
• Search terms entered by the user and the advertising categories exclude sensitive terms and are widely drawn so as not to reveal the identity of the user
• Phorm neither has nor wants information that would let it link a user ID and profile to a living individual
• Users are presented with an unavoidable statement about the product and asked to exercise a choice about whether to be involved
• Users are able to easily access information on how to change their mind at any point and are free to opt in or out of the scheme.
„Google nimmt Datenschutz extrem ernst“
Interview mit Peter Fleischer, dem Datenschutzbeauftragten des Suchmaschinenbetreibers Google.
Google anonymization not anonymous enough
Google may have deflected regulatory smack-down in the short-term, but it’s privacy practices are still not up to the same standards as its competitors. They only recently halved the retention period for personal information to 9 months, but even then their anonymizing process is simply changing the last digit in the logged IP. Diabolical! Even Microsoft completely eliminates IPs from search tracking data eventually.
But: The simple truth is that any IP anonymization technique, no matter how strong or weak, is simply a waste of time, if cookie values are not also anonymized.
