JDN reports a study made by Epitech which, as far as I could make out (JDN does not indicate or refer to external links), is a firm/school specialised in information technology. 1032 persons answered what is probably a questionaire. 95.64% know that using the web leaves tracks and between 44 to 60% use the privacy function of their web browser or proxy websites to avoid being tracked down. 94% believe spying is possible, whether of e-mails, forums or social networking.
