Presumably they'll be looking to ban all the other analytics software vendors out there too? It's rare for you to be able to assign behaviour to a named individual, if that was the case then I could understand the concern but when its largely anonymous what's the problem?

They are very out of touch with the use and nature of the information available.

Our governments themselves hold much more sensitive information, which they like to leave on trains in briefcases and laptops whenever possible.

However I could see why Germany might be a little over sensitive to this.

So now, nearly 10 years later, has this been resolved in Germany?

I know the "do not follow" button has been in the news as google & crew continue to amass even more information to use in marketing and user tracking efforts. It would be interesting to know if/how Germany balanced the issue of profit-seeking organizations and individual privacy.

IIs this a German thing - being extra sensitive to 'privacy' issues?
