Industry Vendors Eyeing The Potential Impact of ‘Do Not Track’ Legislation

Online privacy has come under the microscope following the February introduction of a bill that would regulate the collection and use of information obtained from Internet tracking.

Given marketers’ pressure to focus on relevant, targeted offers, this could potentially impact the way marketers track and collect behavioral activity. “In a business environment, IT professionals may start to set company machine browser settings to a default do not track status which could have a pretty significant impact on online data collection and analytics,” said Dick Reed, CEO, Just Media. “The results in either case would be some very significant and negative impacts on both campaign targeting and analytics.”
