Privacy Toolbox

If you’re concerned about how Google is using your personal information, there are steps you can take to protect yourself. We’ve compiled a toolbox of resources that we have found helpful in protecting our privacy. Check back often as we will be adding more as we find them.

Ghostery An unobtrusive browser add-on that displays what trackers are in use on a site, gives you access to a database of background information on each tracker company, and let’s you block trackers selectively. http://www.ghostery.com/

Google SharingA Firefox add-on that mixes the requests of different users together so Google can’t tell what is coming from whom.
