In The Matter of DoubleClick Inc.

Complaint and Request for Injunction, Request for Investigation and for Other Relief


In February 2000, EPIC, joined by Junkbusters, filed an extensive complaint with the Federal Trade Commission alleging that Doubleclick’s decision to engage in user-identified profiling after representing to more than 1,000,000 users of the Internet and by means of an explicit privacy policy at more than 1,000 web sites that it would engage in only anonymous profiling. EPIC asserted that such action is an unfair and deceptive trade practice in violation of the FTC Act.

This is EPIC's original complaint.
