Number of the week:
A study found that only 7 out of 1,000 Internet surfers reject cookies
Source: Web Side Story analysis of 1 billion page views.

Compare that with Pew Internet & American Life Project study which found that 84 percent of Internet users in the US are concerned about businesses and strangers getting their personal data online, but 56 percent did not know about cookies.

So people are concerned about privacy, but don't act on their concerns.
