SMIRC Defined

Stalk, Monitor, Inject,  Record, and Control or SMIRC - pronounced as 'smirk', is the acronym

that describes the process web sites use after embedding the stalker on visitors browsers in order to record and study the visitors browsing history, computer components, user location, and to follow, record and report the users visits to other sites. For your "browsing pleasure" state most Privacy Policy declarations.

Most O/S, web sites, ISPs, Anti-Virus, programs, device apps and some hardware incorporate the SMIRC process in one form or another. It's open season on privacy.


Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines "stalking" as:




* Legal Definition of stalking

the act or crime of willfully and repeatedly following or harassing another person in circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to fear injury or death especially because of express or implied threats
broadly a crime of engaging in a course of conduct directed at a person that serves no legitimate purpose and seriously alarms, annoys, or intimidates that person.


NOTE: Stalking is often considered to be aggravated when the conduct involved also violates a restraining order protecting the victim.


 * The U.S. version. See the  Wikipedia definitions of stalking for other countries.
