British ISP Orange Shuns Phorm
Jack Marshall for ClickZ reports here that 'British mobile operator and ISP Orange will not use behavioral targeting technology from Phorm to track its subscribers' Web activity and deliver ads to them' [...] 'The spokesperson did not discount the use of behavioral targeting technology entirely, stating, "We are open to finding new ways of using data that will provide value to our customers and to advertisers alike."'
