More Information on Cookies
The following excerpts are from the Feb. 2011 Popular Mechanics article by Glenn Derene and Seth Porges, entitled ‘Surviving the Digital Swarm’. This website is offering this information as a courtesy to our visitors:
“Web cookies aren’t all bad – they allow online merchants to store items in virtual shopping carts, and keep you logged in to Web-based e-mail services – but they can also be used by marketers to log your online activity. Some cookies can track you across multiple sites.”
“The conventional best practice has always been to turn off third-party cookies in your browser’s privacy settings – this keeps outside advertisers from tracking you, yet still allows websites to work properly.”
“Lately, however, a new privacy threat has gained attention. Cookies are also stored by Adobe’s ubiquitous Flash software, which has its own separate privacy settings. The scary part: Blocking cookies in most browsers has no effect on Flash cookies, and savvy marketers have exploited this loophole to open up a whole new avenue of tracking, even using Flash cookies to reinstall deleted browser cookies.” “…that constantly repopulates itself, even across browsers, every time you try to delete it.”
“To control Flash cookies, right-click on any Web-based Flash content (such as a YouTube video), and select ‘Global Settings’ to bring up the ‘Adobe Settings manager’. To clear cookies, go to the ‘Website Storage Settings’ panel.”
