Update - U.S. Government Steps Up Enforcement of Online Privacy


Following a Congressional report that found several U.S. government web sites were not complying with Federal privacy policies, the Office of Management and Budget has begun to keep better watch on
government agencies.

"What we've done concretely is to ask them... to give us an update on where they are in the [privacy] process and how they are correcting their policy if it is out of compliance with our regulations," said an OMB spokesman.

Much of the debate is over the use of "cookies," small text files which collect information about users. Cookies are forbidden if they are solely for the purpose of gathering info, but allowed for helpful purposes like electronic shopping carts.
