Британские интернет-магазины передавали данные о клиентах третьим лицам

Крупнейшие интернет-магазины Великобритании передавали информацию о покупателях третьим лицам, сообщает The Sunday Times. На сайтах магазинов Debenhams, Mothercare, Marks & Spencer, Boots, House of Fraser, Amazon и Tesco были размещены от 13 до 65 средств для отслеживания действий покупателей. С помощью этих средств можно узнать IP-адреса клиентов, данные об их местонахождении, устройстве и браузере, которыми они пользуются.«Система онлайн-рекламы построена на гарантии, что информация, которую отслеживают, анализируют, продают и приобретают интернет-магазины — анонимна»,— прокомментировал ситуацию британский активист организации по защите личной информации Privacy International Фредерик Калтенер. Лица, которым интернет-магазины передавали сведения о клиентах, по мнению господина Калтенера, могли использовать данные для рекламы.
