I FULLY SUPPORT THIS PROPOSAL TO IMPLEMENT AN INTERNET "DO NOT TRACK OPTION". TRACKING BY INTERNET COMPANIES IS A SERIOUS EROSION OF PERSONAL PRIVACY AND THE CONSUMER HAS NO PROTECTION AGAINST THE COLLECTION AND STORAGE OF PERSONAL DATA. AS IT NOW STANDS SEARCH ENGINES COLLECT MORE PRIVATE DATA ABOUT US THAN THE GOVERNMENT. PLEASE ACT ON CONSUMER'S BEHALF AND PASS THIS BILL.
