ONLINE PRIVACY Online privacy issues are of increasing concern
among Internet users. Advocates of online privacy are troubled
with information being gathered from Internet users without their
consent. Information may be gathered through the acceptance
of cookies, proxies set by Internet Service Providers, online gaming,
and downloading programs on the Internet. First and foremost
- DON'T PANIC - most of the time you will be safe. However,
as with all areas of life, one needs to be wise about one's actions.
Educating yourself about online privacy issues is important because
understanding helps eliminate potentially abusive situations.
Companies will provide privacy statements in terms of what information
they gather, as well as whether or not they sell this information
to other companies. Your privacy is of paramount importance.
Your Internet Service Provider is not the only area of concern with
your on-line privacy. It involves your actions while you are
on the Internet. When you visit a web page that you customize
with your personal settings, what is called a "cookie"
saves your preferences and is stored on your hard drive. The
next time that you visit that website, the cookie sends the information
to the website so that the website appears to you with all of your
settings. However, different types of cookies may be used
to track information about websites that you visit. This information
may be sold to marketers to target you for certain products.
Please note: a cookie CANNOT read your hard drive to find out personal
information about you - the only information it has is information
you supply. If you would like more information about cookies,
please visit http://www.cookiecentral.com/ for a very easy to read and in-depth discussion of cookies.
Another potential situation for invasion of your online privacy
occurs when you download a program and the program also installs
Spyware, which is software that uses your Internet connection to
track the websites that you visit. This information is then
sold to advertisers. Don't worry - there are many programs
geared toward protecting your online privacy - Spybot and Malwarebytes to name two, will scan your computer and remove any Spyware found
You can also download ZeroClick and Guard-IE Ad Blocking, both of
which block online advertisements and cookies that could be installed
on your hard drive and invade your privacy (both available for download
at: http://www.shareware.net ).
Also, you can consider discontinuing the
use of your current email box and use a new or different email name
to get away from the solicitors that are already abusing your private
information. Remember: the best rule to follow is to only
download programs and open up email attachments from trusted sources.
