As a consumer, I am very dissapointed with the FTC's approach to "privacy" since it is not focusing on personal identifiable and sensitive information. I am more concerned about someone unknowningly tracking or collecting my sensitive data (e.g, name, address, health records, social security number, credit cards). I am a recent victim of identify theft. I could careless if someone knows I am shopping for an Ipad or have interest in a buying a car.
Please focus your attention on guarding the privacy of my personal information, not my internet shopping habits.
