Abstract: The ability of advertisers and third-party aggregators to collect a vast amount of personal information about users who visit various Web sites has been steadily growing. This presentation covers two publications related to this problem: [1] "Privacy leakage vs. Protection measures: the growing disconnect" which investigates the leakage of personally identifiable information over popular non-OSN Web sites and [2] "Detection and Defending Against Third-Party Tracking on the Web" that present a study of web tracking.
