Sir/Madam I support your concern regarding privacy issues. In order to provide true privacy though we need to strongly consider infrastructures and legislation that protect individuals first. To this end I propose that you consider "Do Track/Call/Mail" mechanisms instead of "Do Not Track/Call/Mail" mechanisms , ie. opt-in rather than opt-out. In this scenario business and marketeers cannot and should not be allowed to track, mail, call etc. unless someone has specifically opted in. Yes - it will make it more difficult for business to market, but it will also go a long way to protection of individual rights and privacy. Thank you Pierre le Roux
