Abstract

In this project we examine Internet users' Web browsing habits and their level of awareness about privacy on the Web. We created a Web site that describes common ways used online in order to gather information about users without their knowledge. Besides just providing general information to users about this issue, we also show them their own available personal information. Our hope is that this personalized approach will raise their awareness of this important issue.
