Americans oppose storage of search queries

A new national poll by the Center for Survey Research at the University of Connecticut shows that although the public is split over whether companies should turn search information over to the government, they do not support either Internet companies storing such information or the government monitoring it.

Only 13% of the public feel "extremely" or "very" confident that the search behavior collected by Internet companies will remain private. 33% feel "somewhat" confident, and 50% are either "not too" confident or "not at all" confident. Spam Daily News | Americans oppose storage of search queries
