Most of us use the Internet daily but do we really know how much information is being gathered and how much is known about us? This infographic will educate you about an area that is much bigger than many think. Learn about what tracking is, how much is known about you, what information is collected, how you are tracked and why you should be concerned. 

Does this fact concern you? "There are no limits to what types of information can be collected."

Luckily there are some things you may do and the last section of the infographic provides information to help you keep more of your actions private.
