1/23/2001; 4:57:59 PM

'The Federal Trade Commission told an attorney for DoubleClick (DCLK) on Monday that the commission has closed its investigation of the company's data-handling practices....

'The FTC had been investigating whether DoubleClick's data handling constituted an "unfair or deceptive" trade practice. According to Monday's FTC letter to Christine Varney, a Washington attorney and a former Federal Trade Commissioner who represents DoubleClick, the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection staff now believes that the company "never used or disclosed consumers' [personal data] for purposes other than those disclosed in its privacy policy."'
