An advertiser that monitored online activities of consumers even after they'd opted out of its tracking system agreed to stop after settling allegations by the Federal Trade Commission that accused it of deceptive practices.

Chitika Inc., which acts as a middleman between websites and advertisers, was investigated by the FTC as part of ongoing campaign to protect consumers' online privacy.
