What is the state of development of technologies and business methods aimed at: (1) Improving companies’ ability to monitor and audit their compliance with their privacy policy and expressed user preferences; (2) using text analysis or similar technologies to provide privacy notices; and (3) enabling anonymized browsing, communication and authentication? Please describe any other ongoing efforts to develop privacy-enhancing technologies or processes of which the Commerce Department should be aware. How has recent research demonstrating the possibility of data re-identification affected anonymization research efforts? Have consumers or businesses readily accepted or used these technologies when they were made available? What steps can be taken to assure that privacy-enhancing business processes are robust, complied with and regularly updated? Do technology designers and implementers have the right balance of incentives to include privacy considerations at the design phase of their work? Have currently-available privacy-related technologies and processes increased user trust or companies’ ability to manage personal information? Finally, the FCC has raised a number of privacy-related recommendations for government action.34 Specifically, the Plan recommends clarifying the relationship between users and their online profiles; developing trusted ‘‘identity providers’’ to assist consumers manage their data; and creating principles to require customers provide informed consent before service providers share certain types of information with third parties. What kinds of contributions to privacy and innovation could such identity providers make? What marketplace experience is there with such trusted third parties? Are there any services of this sort imagined by the FCC in operation today? Is any government action needed to encourage the marketplace in this direction? 7. Small and Medium-Sized Entities and Startup Companies Small and medium-sized entities (SMEs) and startup companies face the same data protection laws and guidelines as their larger counterparts, but with fewer resources. The Task 34 See 15:23 Apr 22, 2010 8. The Role for Government/Commerce Department The U.S. privacy framework described above is multi-faceted. The combination of sector-specific laws for sensitive data, self-regulation, complemented by FTC enforcement authority, transparent privacy practices, and voluntary guidelines, have generated industry best practices, privacy seal programs and private sector innovation to enhance privacy disclosures and consumer choice regarding data usage. In many, though not all cases, this has been a formula for success to build on. Yet, surveys continue to indicate that consumers are concerned or confused about what happens to their personal information online. The Task Force seeks input on how to help address barriers to increased innovation and consumer trust in the information economy. How can the Commerce Department help address issues raised by this Notice of Inquiry? Dated: April 20, 2010. Gary M. Locke, Secretary of Commerce. Lawrence E.

How do existing privacy laws impact SMEs and startup companies? Please describe any unique compliance burdens placed on smaller companies as a result of existing privacy laws. Are there commercial or collective tools available to address such issues? How might privacy protections be better achieved in the SME environment? Have smaller companies been unable to engage in certain types of business activities as a result of existing privacy laws?

    Marine recreational anglers are surveyed for catch and effort data,

National Marine Fisheries Service is developing pilot studies to test 
alternative approaches for surveying recreational anglers. Studies will 
test the effectiveness of panel surveys for contacting anglers and 
collecting recreational fishing catch and
