Howard J. Barsky, D.M.D. recognizes that the growth of online services, including Internet services, has created additional privacy concerns, particularly for consumers.
Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of “client identifiable” information which an individual or organization reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, “client identifiable” information is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a client’s name, address, telephone number, email address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them.
Business websites may ask visitors to supply information about themselves, particularly when information, service or merchandise is requested, but often simply to be able to better target the business’ services to the client’s interests and requirements.
