January-February 2005 (vol. 3 no. 1)
pp. 26-33
Alessandro Acquisti, Carnegie Mellon University

Yet, empirical and theoretical research shows that consumers often lack enough information to make privacy-sensitive decisions and, even with sufficient information, are likely to trade off long-term privacy for short-term benefits.
Index Terms:
personal privacy, personal information, bounded rationality, privacy decisions
