this marketing cookie system is global imo. a way to target users with specific goods and services. a large advertising concern in the uk basically

pricing structure worked (money up front from me) and the more hits generated, the more revenue they glean. i then informed them that i am suspicious
of the alphabet soup agencies relationship with the fakebook system, the interdependencies that would be near impossible to unravel oneself from and
the data mining orgy that seems to be ramping up. the silence from the two reps after the statement regarding the soup agencies and fakebook was very
if you are concerned about these tracking systems when you are out on the net, i would suggest you read the terms and conditions prior to making
purchases. if a specific article does not exist within their t and c's and this tracking becomes apparent, then i suggest some more research and an
email to the site it came from. this has the potential of becoming very messy as the specific cookies have access to the rest of your cookies, then
this data is collected and the information used to target you with said goods and services.
i suspect a rebuttal coming in a reply to this as it is a very sensitive issue for those who run sites and want revenue stream without the users
knowing the full implications.
btw the look of shock and horror on both the reps faces when i rejected their pressure sales tactics was a picture.
commercial trojan anyone?
