Chapter 107 Protection of Privacy on the Web 1. Most people are concerned about online privacy but may not be aware of the various ways that their personal information is collected during routine Web browsing. 2. We review the types of personal information that may be collected voluntarily or involuntarily through the Web browser or disclosed by a Web server. 3. We present a taxonomy of regulatory and technological approaches to protect privacy. 4. All approaches to date have only been partial solutions. 5. By its nature , the Web was designed to be an open system to facilitate data sharing, and hence Web privacy continues to be a challenging problem. 6. Clearly there are different types of personal information, with varying degrees of sensitivity. 7. Personal data can be classified further into anonymous information (which can not be traceable to a specific person); personally identifiable information; or private information. 8. Information can be anonymized by “scrubbing” any identifying aspects or by aggregating multiple records into a single record.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
