This thesis is focused on internet services user privacy. Goal of this thesis is to determine level of user awareness of how is their privacy approached while using internet services. Then suggest procedure to improve this awareness, or that will lead to better control of individual privacy. In theoretical part I analyze general and legislative approach to privacy, followed by analysis of behaviour of internet service users and providers. Part of this analysis deals with usage of web cookies for user tracking purposes and its possible impact on user privacy. Practical part consists of survey which is used to determine true level of user awareness of how is their privacy approached while using internet services, and of suggestion of measures to improve protection of privacy.
