Web Analytics Firms Distinguish Practices from Adware/Spyware


The Web Analytics Association, a trade group of major web analytics firms—including Webtrends, Clicktracks, and Urchin—this week issued a statement declaring that its members will open up their policies and practices for third-party review. The statement also included a condemnation of spyware and adware companies, with whom they are claiming to be unfairly grouped together.
