FTC Extends Comments Deadline for Privacy Report

  |  January 24, 2011   |  Comments

Ad industry groups, privacy advocates, and others now have until Feb. 18 to submit feedback on Do-Not-Track.

The Federal Trade Commission has extended the deadline for the public to comment on its recent report, "Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change." The last day to submit feedback is February 18, just over two weeks later than the original deadline.

In a statement the agency said a number of organizations had requested more time to digest the report, which includes a proposal for a Do-Not-Track mechanism for online advertising. ClickZ is among those preparing to submit comprehensive feedback on behalf of readers.

The FTC said it approved the request "to encourage full participation by all stakeholders." The extension was approved by a unanimous vote of the agency's five commissioners.

The report can be downloaded here, and comments can be submitted here.
