The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is considering options for revising
the current prohibition on web tracking technologies (such as persistent cookies)
***
On June 22, 2000, OMB issued memorandum M-00-13, which was later updated by memorandum M-03-22, prohibiting the use of web tracking technologies unless the agency head approves the use of these technologies due to a compelling need.
***
Technologies such as persistent cookies enable websites to remember a visitor’s preferences and settings, allowing for a more personalized, user-friendly experience.
***
While the benefits of using web tracking technologies are clear, OMB is acutely aware of, and sensitive to, the privacy questions raised by the use of such technologies.
***
It is anticipated that there would be more stringent restrictions or review of the uses of such technologies within the tiers that have higher privacy risks associated with them.

I was thinking about that subject now.
I want someone to know every last detail about me, but I want to be the only one that has access to it, and it should be a legal document.

I actually signed up to have my complete genome made publicly available. If I have something to hide I don't know bout it yet.

Ha!

Thankfully size doesn't matter in genetics. The animal with the largest genome on earth (that has been sequenced so far) is actually a species of lungfish.

Someone else notice the FR notice.
