Online group to develop Web privacy symbols

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "A technology industry group plans to develop a set of symbols that would
summarize online privacy policies, enabling Internet users to quickly assess the data
practices of Web sites they visit.

Internet privacy-compliance program Truste will announce the program Tuesday with the hopes
that it will effectively summarize the often lengthy, legalese-choked documents many Web sites
post to explain what they do with the names, addresses and other data they collect from visitors."
