Abstract: The paper is an empirical study assessing both European and American college students in their knowledge and perceptions of online privacy and security features of the Internet. It attempts to identify differences and similarities between and among those two student groups, and to build a link for academics to better address challenges of teaching about the appropriate usage of online technologies, in particular of the participation in eCommerce. The study found that there are numerous differences between European and American students but also a number of similarities in the general use of online technology.
