US FTC bars advertising firm from sniffing browser histories

quote:
An online advertising firm accused of spying on the browser histories of consumers has reached a settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission barring it from further browser history sniffing, the agency announced.

Epic Marketplace illegally gathered information from millions of Web users, including information about medical and financial issues such as fertility, incontinence, debt relief and personal bankruptcy, the FTC alleged.

The settlement with the FTC, announced Wednesday, bars Epic Marketplace from continuing to use history sniffing technology and requires the company to destroy information it gathered illegally, the FTC said in a press release.
