Government responds to Phorm privacy laws


by David Allen

The government is being taken to court by the EU over the secret testing of the targeting advertising system Phorm on BT customers.

Over twenty one thousand four hundred consumers signed a petition on the Downing St website asking the government to look into the Phorm issue and the secret trials with BT.

Therefore, consumers should be able to expect the government to listen to the concerns that people have and make a decision that answers the questions.

Yet it seems that the government has already made up its mind as to where this is going and has said that both advertisers and internet service providers have to make sure that they comply with the current laws on data protection and privacy.

Once again, the issue of Phorm and consumers rights are not being answered fully, and therefore consumers still remains unaware of their rights.
