PRIVACY CONCERNS IN INTERNET APPLICATIONS

Moshe Zviran, Seev Neumann, Diego Hocksman

Abstract

Privacy is defined as “freedom from unauthorized intrusion”. While privacy has been a sensitive issue before the advent of computers, the concern has been further exacerbated by the fact that the Web makes it easy for data to be automatically collected and added to databases and analyzed by sophisticated data mining tools and personalized marketing services. This study explores the nature of the privacy concern in the online environment. The objective of this study is to get a better understanding of the factors that can affect online privacy and how this concern could affect users’ behavior.
