Internet communities are moving to the Cloud, but in addition to the advantages regarding cost and convenience, this also means that cloud service providers are increasingly in a position to aggregate large amounts of personal data, which means that it is becoming prudent to develop mechanisms that can contribute to limiting the information available to providers.
