Compendium of Behavioral Targeting 'Sensitive' Definitions
CDT today released a compendium of definitions for those grappling with the question of what information should be considered "sensitive" in the online behavioral targeting context. Culled from an array of statutes, self-regulatory guidelines and policy proposals, the definitions address information about individuals that has been granted some measure of special treatment. Use of sensitive data is a key issue in the FTC's proposed self-regulatory principles released in December 2007. The compendium was developed in consultation with CDT's Internet Privacy Working Group.
