Depository Of International Online Privacy Resources


One of our more popular posts of the year was the recent Online Marketers’ Guide to Online Privacy.  It focuses mostly on U.S. law with some mention of of the E.U. Safe Harbor issues.   The purpose of this post is to host information regarding international online privacy issues.  If you know a good resource for a country not listed, let me know and I will update this periodically.
