In an effort to head off increasing scrutiny of Internet privacy, a group of online tracking rivals is building a service that lets consumers see what those companies know about them.
The $25 billion Internet advertising industry is scrambling to make more transparent its widespread practice of collecting, selling and using Web browsing and other profile information about consumers, as part of a broader effort to ward off federal regulation. Companies are joining forces to build a service letting consumers see what information they know about them.
