This website is the only one I know of that doesn't go off your search history. I get the weirdest ads here. I suspect there's not a lot of traffic, so they have to accept off-off-brands.

I'm getting E-Trade and Loan ads, and have not searched for anything remotely related.

Whatever you do online has a cookie trail no pun intended

I can guarantee you that the ads on here are NOT based on your search history. 99% of them, I've never even thought about. Cruises and vacations to crazy countries, some I've never heard of, gay crap (I'm a very hapily married to a woman) Asian women, Russian women, black, etc. No discrimination but I love my white girls...lol
Maybe they think you need some spice in your life. They feel sorry for you that all you have are plain ass women.

I have my doubts about the accuracy of the "targeting". I get adds on this site advertising for real estate investments for those with more than 1.5 million to invest, and for dating Asian women.

They say big data knows you better than you know yourself, but my being both independently wealthy and having a penchant for Asian women came as a bit of a surprise.

Back to IT security , couple years ago our computer system here got hacked and held hostage for big bucks was real ugly we finally paid them and they released our files but then want us on a payment plan again wasn't good TILL.

We decided to pay a security firm the BIG bucks instead "INTERNOS" now no spam no unwanted emails they have complete dominance of our security here as for computer.

Boy it works anything that attacks it's like we have a force field here and all day long were sent emails fro m Internos to approve acceptance and even then they scan for security then it let in to me.

Just something to get used to but it works Outlook is clean but if we go on site and there clean those cookie let as long as there clean.
