Skeptical of Internet Privacy Policies

Agency Skeptical of Internet Privacy Policies
SAUL HANSELL
Published: Friday, February 13, 2009 at 4:27 a.m.

The Federal Trade Commission had some sharp words for Internet companies Thursday, saying that they are not explaining to their users clearly enough what information they collect about them and how they use it for advertising.

For now, the commission is sticking to its view that the Internet industry can voluntarily regulate its own privacy practices.

But the tone of the report, and comments by several commission members and staff officials, indicated that if the industry does not move faster, the agency would increase regulation or call for Congress to legislate stricter online privacy rules.
