Thursday, the Obama administration unveiled a plan for an online privacy bill of rights intended to protect consumers on the web.
It gives consumers the right to know what information is being collected and calls on all broswer makers to implement easy to use "do not track" technology.
The proposed bill would be made up of seven parts: Individual control, transparency, respect for context, security, access and accuracy, focused collection, accountability.
This is not the first time the administartion has backed a privacy bill of rights. Senators John Kerry and John McCain teamed up to introduce a similar bill in 2011, but it did not pass.
