Helping you protect your privacy online

Most content on the Internet - from the latest political news to up-to-the-minute sports scores and stock quotes - is free to consumers. Why? Because of effective Internet advertising. What makes Internet advertising effective is the use of technologies that allow advertising networks, analytics firms, websites, and others to make inferences about consumer tastes and provide relevant content. Because of the seemingly complex nature of these technologies, many users have become concerned about their online privacy. Recognizing these concerns, the NAI--an association of advertising networks, data exchanges, and marketing analytics services providers--has made consumer education a top priority. As part of that commitment, we have developed this site to help you safeguard your online privacy.

A visitors Web browser can download the machine-readable privacy statements, and compare the contents of those statements to the users preferences. This way, the users browser can automatically notify the user when they visit a site whose practices match the users preferences or warn the user if the practices and preferences dont match.
