FTC bars Epic Marketplace from sniffing through web users' history - the Inquirer
Epic Marketplace would put adverts in front of web users that were tailored based on looking through their web history, known in the business as online behavioural advertising. Now the firm has admitted FTC claims that it used "history sniffing" and was illegally gathering data and has been barred from repeating its actions.
