Web marketing data-protection bill clears Senate panel

Websites would not be able to share a user’s credit card or debit card data with a third-party company and such outside vendors would have to offer full disclosure of the terms of their offers, under a measure approved Wednesday by the Senate Commerce Committee. The legislation is the result of a probe by the panel into so-called data-pass marketing, in which users allegedly without their permission join discount membership clubs and have their data shared with third-party companies through their dealings with online retail sites.  National Journal/Tech Daily Dose blog
