ANA Joins Comments with Department of Commerce on Privacy Report

On January 28th, we joined with our association partners in filing comments with the Department of Commerce on its Internet Policy Task Force Privacy Green Paper.  We filed two sets of comments which discuss the steps the industry is taking to respond to consumer concerns about the privacy of their information in the online environment.  The first of our comment letters describes the benefits provided by online behavioral advertising to consumers and that voluntary steps by industry should be the way forward rather than regulation by the government.  The other set of comments describes the industry’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising, which we initiated in response to a call from the FTC for effective self-regulation.
