Excerpt from 'CBBB Steps Up Online Enforcement':

The Council of Better Business Bureaus (CBBB) announced plans to increase monitoring and enforcement of the advertising industry’s online activities.

The Internet-based Advertising Accountability Program monitors the marketplace for compliance with the industry principles, the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising.

The self-regulatory principles require companies to provide “enhanced notice” to consumers and utilize an icon for interest-based ads, signaling to consumers that the site may be collecting their data. Consumers can also click on the icon, a lower-case “i” with a triangle around it, to receive more details about the advertiser’s data collection practices and choose to opt-out of future targeted advertising.
