DoubleClick reaffirms privacy position

"Despite recent comments in the media to the contrary, DoubleClick is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals on the internet," said Chantelle Kirkman, managing director, DoubleClick, TechSolutions Australia.

"Kevin O'Connor (CEO of DoubleClick) was recently attributed with saying that personal data such as user names and addresses could be supplied to online advertisers without a user's active consent or payment," she said. "This is simply untrue. DoubleClick does not and cannot capture those kinds of personal details."

Kirkman said DoubleClick's business was dependent upon consumers having the confidence to go online without fear of personal details being used in an unscrupulous manner.

"DoubleClick does use cookie technology as a means for ensuring frequency capping, the number of times an advertisement is presented to an individual. (But) to attempt to profit from the exploitation of individuals' online privacy would be a very short-termed approach and DoubleClick is here for the long haul.

"It just doesn't make good business sense," she said.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
