Privatsphäre: Globales Opt-out?

„‘Do Not Track’ Is Back, and This Time It Might Work – California’s privacy law says businesses must respect universal opt-outs. Now the technology finally exists to put that to the test. … In theory, the law gives California residents the right to opt out of any business selling their data. In practice, it hasn’t seen much use. Most people don’t go to the trouble of opting out of every website, one at a time. … The CCPA includes a mechanism for solving the one-by-one problem. The regulations interpreting the law specify that businesses must respect a ‚global privacy control‘ sent by a browser or device. .. This could finally make privacy a real right for internet users in California, and perhaps nationally, if Washington takes notice. It could also push companies away from business models based on microtargeted advertising.“
