Toysrus.com stops using Coremetrics
Privacy from Companies
8/15/2000; 9:46:42 AM '"For a short period of time, we had a trial arrangement with a service called Coremetrics to assist us in evaluating information about how visitors use our site," Toysrus.com's policy read. "This trial arrangement is no longer in effect."'
I think I understand thier point of view (if they are telling the truth)... "It was only a trial, why should we notify customers of something temporary that we may not even go with?" The answer is, of course, that a site like Toysrus.com can collect more data in an hour then I could collect from this site in a year; what looks like a trial arrangement can still collect a lot of data very quickly, without customer's knowlege. It's a perspective thing.
