I very much support the FTC Staff Report on "Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: A Proposed Framework for Businesses and Policymakers."
I would like not tracking to be the default. I would like internet businesses to state that they will not keep information each time I have a transaction. Consumers need that level of reassurance.
I also do not want cookies embedded in my computer that will lead to advertisements. If I want something, I'll look for it. If someone sends me an ad, I won't buy from them, but they don't know that.
As a citizen (and a consumer when I want to be), I want to regain control of my online identify and history.
Thank you again for your efforts in this regard. My tax dollars are at work on my behalf!
