Examples of such links would be embedded items and links to
other websites where a banner or display is used which
contains code that allows the originating website to plant a cookie
on the computer of a visitor to the page containing the embed.
Some of these cookies send tracking information back to the originator.
We try and avoid allowing anyone to plant cookies through our website as so many are used for tracking and information gathering purposes and we regard such activities as intrusive.
For example, where we have embedded a YouTube video, the code that
allows the video to appear and display on our website will
place a cookie on the viewers computer.
With YouTube there is a 'no-cookie' option to the code settings that we always use when we embed.
This setting stops YouTube planting a cookie when someone visits the page unless they click on the video and watch it.
Social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook are always tracking peoples movements. Newspaper websites allow lots of 3rd party cookies - many websites do - these
sites get paid for selling information about their visitors and
their browsing habits.
Although we use social media websites ourselves, we do not use any of their banners or active links on our sites.
We set up our own links to prevent them planting cookies unless someone chooses to visit their site.
We take this action wherever we can and will use banners and generated links if we can disable cookies from being planted though them, but sometimes interactive links cannot be disabled without ceasing to work properly.
Our advice to everyone using the internet is to use privacy tools fully. Block cookies, particularly third party cookies.
Clear cookies from your browser when you leave websites. Make sure your browser is set to clear cookies when you close it.
We try and protect our clients but these tracking people are devious so we recommend you use tracking prevention browser add-on's that block advertising companies, social network sites and information gatherers from tracking your browsing habits and either selling on that information or using it to sell targeted advertising. It is your information they are stealing - your identity.
Do Not Track Me from Abine is a good browser add-on that blocks trackers from following you around the internet, and its free.
