How and why is this site tracking my activities on the internet? I guess I should thank you, because I didn't realize that I wasn't protected from tracking. I've taken care of that. I'm just surprised it was being done here.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Tracking

    It appears to me (cursory looksee) that any tracking from here is via google ads, not anything that Dan's techies are doing.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    I made couple purchases, online.....one clothing, one appliance parts. Adds for those sites including the parts I purchased, appeared on the side bar of this site. I'm not all that savvy with the computer. If it's someone else tracking, how do they get it on your site? Just curious, I think I'm somewhat protected now.

    Google

    We have Google ads on our site. They watch and respond as you experienced. We're not tracking you. Google pretty much watches everything we all do. I accepted that years ago.



    Thanks for the business!

    Thanks Dan

    As I said, I'm not that savvy with the computer. I'm sorry for the accusation. Ya know...I had no delusions that I was not being watched when I was on the computer. I just never had undeniable evidence before.

    No worries.

    Most days, I can't even keep track of myself!

    it's goggle

     it's called ad choices, and they use your goggle cookies or what ever and show u ads of sites that u have subcribed to. u can go on any site that has ad choices and u will see familiar web sites.

    Spook Stuff

    I'm no "Conspiracy Theorist", but imagine what the government has watching peoples movements on the computer. Got a camera in that laptop?

    I've thought about it...

    and if they really wanna watch my boring life, let them. It would only be nice to know when they are watching, I would at least consider wearing pants.
