This paper presents the thesis that consumer information available online is becoming a hazard for the society as there are no laws that are protecting the security of the data. The paper argues that the U.S. government is demanding their rights to the information corporations have and websites are extracting their own consumer profiles without clarifying the situation to the consumer.

Thesis Statement

From the Paper:

"The issue of Internet privacy has become integral to the society today as more and more website are using software to retain customer data and not ensuring security of that data in a manner that would inspire confidence in the consumer. Further, as the war on terrorism continues the government has suggested that they would have the right to infringe on the privacy rights of the individual in order to protect national security. And cyber-terrorism falls within the paradigm of national security. We see then a fine line being drawn between the rights of the consumer, the rights of the companies and the rights of the government.
"The technological world that we live in today allows us to have a lot of freedom and yet, at the same time it creates numerous issues that through time become potentially hazardous. The main problematic issue that has been created in today's world is that of privacy. Internet technology though innovative and mind boggling in terms of pervasiveness has caused a dilemma in the minds of the administration."
