Presentation Overview

Questions about privacy online focus on individuals and their choice to go online and message friends, look for a mortgage rate, research a family member’s disease, or browse for dog toys.  Instead, I wish to focus on the responsibilities of the unseen tracking companies (trackers) watching us online when they decide to enter our online community.  The goal of this presentation is to identify the different roles and responsibilities of the many actors online within the current network of surveillance and tracking.
