Your Privacy Online – What They Know – WSJ.com.

Notwithstanding the WSJ’s rabid right-wing leanings elsewhere in its editorial pages, this is a good series on the growth of user tracking across the web. The only criticism I have is that it only covers the activities of commercial advertisers.

This article helpfully provides links to pages that large internet companies provide to reveal what they know (or think they know and are willing to admit that they know) about you.

As always, if this is what the companies most open to public scrutiny do, one wonders about organisations not subject to public scrutiny.
