Phorm and Websites

In the latest saga on Phorm and websites, according to Beeb:

"Seven of the UK's biggest web firms have been urged to opt out of a controversial ad-serving system. Phorm - aka Webwise - profiles users' browsing habits and serves up adverts based on which sites they visit. In an open letter, the Open Rights Group (ORG) has asked the firms to block Phorm's attempts to profile their sites, to thwart the profiling system. Before now, Phorm has defended its technology saying that it does not break data interception la ws. Legal view Chief privacy officers at Microsoft, Google/Youtube, Facebook, AOL/Bebo, Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay have been sent copies of the letter signed the digital rights campaign group and anti-phorm campaigners."

Open Rights Group has more on this.
