Given that BT, Talk Talk and Virgin media are going to implement the Phorm tracking / profiling spyware, is there a way (apart from signing to another ISP) to prevent Phorm tracking and profiling me?
I don't trust the opt out cookie rubbish. I've written several letters to VM questioning the legality of Phorm citing section 2 and section 8 of the Data Protection Act 1998 and Article 8 of the Human Rights Act but have got nothing back from them. Is it true that Apple's Safari browser for Windows is non compliant with Phorm's technology? and if so, (understanding apparent security flaws in that browser version) is this a viable solution?
