Because News Corp. has apparently given up any pretensions to respecting the privacy of others, it recently updated the privacy policy for the Wall Street Journal website to allow the company to connect personally identifiable information with Web browsing data without user consent.

Before the change, which was made on Tuesday, the WSJ.com privacy policy stated it would obtain “express affirmative consent” to combine personal data with “click stream information.”

And it’s not just WSJ.com. The change is being made to all member sites in the Journal’s Digital Network, including Marketwatch.com, AllthingD.com, Barrons.com and SmartMoney.com.

Additionally, the privacy policy now states that the sites collects mobile browser ID information.
