Updated May 2018
What I really want to say: I get that you are concerned about how you are being tracked online. So am I. As of May 25th, 2018, the EU has adopted the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which regulates how companies can use and share personal data. So far, these stricter rules have only been adopted in the EU, but I expect that other nations will not be far behind. Although I receive only a small fraction of my Website traffic from the EU, I am doing my best to make sure that this Website is GDPR compliant as I believe the consumer is entitled to a much greater level of transparency. Interesting fact: On the very first day the GDPR went into effect, both Facebook and Google were fined more than 8 billion dollars.
