Cookie Clearinghouse pushes 'Do Not Track' another step

Antone Gonsalves | June 24, 2013
Stanford University has launched an online privacy initiative meant to complement Do Not Track, an effort aimed at preventing sites from recording people's Web browsing without permission.

The technology includes a cache in which an application can be downloaded to the browser for use online. That cache is also expected to provide another location for storing tracking files.

Those privacy landmines could be addressed by the Clearinghouse in the future, McDonald said. "You could imagine extending the Cookie Clearinghouse to address those technologies," she said. "But for the moment, we will focus on normal cookies, because that's where the bulk of things are today."
