About 70% of people surveyed are saying that fear of their personal information not being kept private prevents them from buying online. I can say for sure that I will never buy from CDNow again, because they have sent me several email messages a week since I purchased a CD from them. I always search order forms for boxes that allow me to opt out of annoying email messages, but I didn’t see one on the CDNow site, and now they’re sending me email like crazy. Unfortunately, that cost them a customer. By the way, the article I cited uses the completely idiotic term “e-tailer,” I hate that.
