Wall Street Journal Changes Privacy Policy To Track Users' Browsing Data Without Consent
Because News Corp. has apparently given up any pretensions to respecting the privacy of others, it recently updated the privacy policy for the Wall Street Journal website to allow the company to connect personally identifiable information with Web browsing data without user consent.

Before the change, which was made on Tuesday, the WSJ.com privacy policy stated it would obtain "express affirmative consent" to combine personal data with "click stream information."
