Posted on 28 January 2014.
Just in time for Data Privacy Day, Microsoft has released the results of a survey that shows the privacy attitudes of technology savvy individuals in the US and four European countries (Belgium, France, Germany and the UK).

The research found that for the most part people feel they have limited control over how their data is used online (53 percent of the time in the US and 43 percent of the time in Europe) and are interested in understanding how their information is being used.
