by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 21, 2002

Web site watch-dog Google Watch has filed a complaint with the the Data Inspectorate of Norway, against AllTheWeb, where the company’s parent, Fast Search & Transfer International AS, is based. It alleges that the global search engine is collecting and selling consumer data to DoubleClick, via the use of web bugs, and does not provide notice to users of this practice. The search engine does not currently post a Privacy Policy.
