Online Privacy

At the BBB, we take consumer privacy very seriously. In fact both our business and charity standards require that BBB accredited organizations, on their websites, inform consumers about what information they collect and who they share it with.

I came across this fantastic article on NPR about online privacy. It explains the different ways companies track you, what they do with the information they collect about you, and the difference between a 'cookie' and a 'beacon.' It is worth a read.
