McDonald, Aleecia M. (2010): Cookie confusion: do browser interfaces undermine understanding?. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 4393-4398. Available online

We performed a series of in-depth qualitative interviews with 14 subjects recruited to discuss Internet advertising. Participants held a wide range of views ranging from enthusiasm about ads that inform them of new products, to resignation that ads are "a fact of life," to resentment of ads that they find "insulting." We discovered that many participants have a poor understanding of how Internet advertising works, do not understand cookies, and mistakenly believe there are legal protections barring companies from sharing information they collect online. We found that participants have substantial confusion about the results of the actions they take within their browsers, and do not understand the technology they work with now. The user interface for cookie management in popular browsers may be contributing to confusion.
