France: CNIL website section, "Discover how you are
tracked on the Internet"
On personal data protection day, held on Sunday 28 January 2007, the French Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL, National Commission on IT and Freedoms), an official institution responsible for monitoring the respect of legality and liberties in the IT field and in databases, has launched a section of its website entitled "Discover how you are being tracked on the Internet". It looks at different ways in which this tracking may take place, providing a demonstration and some discussion concerning the possible implications of these practices.
