Privacy Advocate To Head lxquick.com U.S. Media Relations

Anti-automatic identification activist and privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht said she will head U.S. media relations for Netherlands-based Ixquick.com, a search engine positioned as "the world's most private search engine" because it promises to delete all IP addresses within 48 hours of collection.

Albrecht is best known for her work on privacy issues associated with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and retail data collection. She co-authored the book "Spychips," and hosts a daily, syndicated radio talk show.

Her writings on privacy have appeared in several notable publications, including Scientific American and the Denver University Law Review. Albrecht, who takes responsibility for strategy, execution, and management of all media communications and marketing initiatives in the United States, will work from New Hampshire and report to Netherlands-based Ixquick CEO Robert Beens.--Laurie Sullivan
