Concerns about users' privacy are currently attracting significant attention. Users usually do not approve of someone mining their actions and habits while tye use the Web. On the other hand, having some information about the user's behavior is essential for providing personalization services. Thus, there is a clear demand for mechanisms that allow users to control their privacy without relying on the visited site's policies. In this paper we propose a tool that tells the user the level of privacy maintained throughout his/her interaction with a given site. By using our tool, the user can become aware of privacy violations and may use privacy preservation mechanisms.
