    Not quite sure what is meant here by "targeting" -- will be looking forward to more information on this one.

      Hi Tamara,
      And welcome to the Twin Cities Software Engineers group!

      Basically it would be a look at the ethics of tracking users based on their GeoIP location, or what they are looking at on other sites and then using that data to target certain products/ services towards them.

      And part of the discussion would be at what point is it acceptable, and at what point does it go to far?
