Explaining online privacy is actually fairly straightforward: you have none. That part is definite. The impact of and remedies for this are considerably less clear-cut, but one thing is certain: whether at home or at work, everything that you, your friends, your employees, your partners, and your customers do online is both transparent and readily available to a host of others. Virtually every site that offers free services, online networking, or shopping captures your activity, amalgamates it with data from other tracking sources, and sells it to someone. Or even many someones. There are no federal statutes in the United States that protect online privacy, and no effective controls over the use of personal information gathered by online surveillance.
