Privacy Tools for Aware Consumers

I am very interested in how graphic designers can take responsibility to make various systems explicit to users, enabling those users to make informed decisions which promote personal control. Recently, I have been researching design opportunities for improving privacy policies for online interfaces. Many companies track user’s behavior, requesting information without explicitly asking for permission. Several tools have been developed to combat such online tracking. Here are some links to find out more information about these specific privacy tools.
