    _Privacy Online: A Report to Congress_
    The US Federal Trade Commission provides this site, highlighted by the
    availability of its _Privacy Online: A Report to Congress_. This 43 page
    monograph "provides an assessment of the effectiveness of self-regulation
    as a means of protecting consumer privacy on the World Wide Web,...  based
    on a comprehensive online survey of the information practices of
    commercial Web sites, including sites directed to children, conducted in
    March 1998;  an examination of current industry guidelines governing
    information practices online; and the record developed in Commission
    hearings and workshops held since 1995." In addition, the site offers tips
    on how to protect personal information, transcripts of relevant
    congressional testimony, useful information about protecting your privacy
    while you "travel" the Net, and FTC pamphlets on consumer protection and
    privacy information, among other features. [JS]
