Hoping to prevent customers from straying, and perhaps laying the groundwork for an
e-tailer browser war, Half.com launched a price-comparison shopping feature Tuesday that
alerts shoppers who click into a competitor's inventory that the item they're looking for
is available back at Half.com.

After shoppers download the "Price Patrol" program from Half.com, they receive an alert
when they click on a product detail page on another merchant's site. Clicking on the
pop-up alert takes shoppers to the same item on Half.com in a new browser window.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
