It is only right that we tell people how to protect themselves when online, make them aware of how much they are tracked, how to resolve it if they feel it is a problem.

The Kent based business is advising new and old clients about protecting the information they give out when visting websites online and recommend Abine`s Do Not Track Plus. Features of the browser add on include the blocking of more than 600 trackers, compatible with Mac or PC for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer and automatic updating to new versions.
Chris Longley, owner of Kent Web Design business confirms "UK and EU citizens are more aware than ever of the privacy protection laws that are afforded to them nowadays. We have seen the Data Protection Act and the EU Cookie Law working toward more freedom of access and protection of information. It is only right that we tell people how to protect themselves when online, make them aware of how much they are tracked, how to resolve it if they feel it is a problem."
Have you ever found the same Ads following you around from website to website? Tracking is about always adding more info to the profile they have of you, based on all they know about you. They can change the ads you see and charge you different prices than other people for the same things. We want our clients to know all about this.
"We work with small local companies. The large corperations who can justify the investment in these technologies are leveraging the information in their favour. I would like to see an end to all tracking of browser based user data to make it a level playing field for the smaller companies who need to market online." says the Kent Digital Media Firm.
Another problem is when companies change their Data Use Policy and privacy controls. When users sign up they are shown the terms of using the website, then if the data usage policy changes, and users are not informed properly, all sorts of data can become taken without your knowledge. DNT+ automates the process of stopping this.
The Abine browser add on gives full control over which company or which type of intrusion can be blocked. One of the features is it still allows social sharing and rebuilds tools like social-networking buttons on the fly, so interactivity isnt interrupted. People do not realise that the social buttons are phoning home with your data as soon as you load the web page. It is not just the social sharing or liking part that activates them.
