Rob Franco from the Internet Explorer development team talks about the Microsoft Phishing Filter which will be featured in Internet Explorer 7.

Protecting your privacy means we will not collect personally identifiable information, we will explain clearly how the feature works, we will give you the choice to use it only when you want to, we will provide a clear indication of how we will use any data, and we’ll use SSL encryption to help protect any queries you send to the anti-phishing server. These are the principles we used to design the Phishing Filter.
