Agency: Management and Budget Office, Executive Office of the President
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is considering options for revising the current prohibition on Web tracking technologies (such as persistent cookies) and invites public comments on the policy that would govern the use of such technologies. The goal of this review is for the Federal Government to continue to protect the privacy of people who visit Federal Government Web sites while at the same time making these Web sites more user-friendly, providing better customer service, and allowing for enhanced Web analytics.
