Google ‘paid millions to Mastercard to track credit card spending’ to find out whether people are being successfully influenced by its online adverts
- Multi-million dollar agreement between the firms took four years to negotiate
- Google can link purchases of Mastercard customers to their email addresses
- These addresses are used to track the online activity of those credit card users
- This information allows Google to tell if you look at an online advertisement in your web browser or app, then later buy the product in a physical store
Adblocker stops this. That is why so many sites have become aggressive towards visitors that use it. These companies have no morals, no morals at all.
I use both Adblocker and Block Site. When a site blanks the screen and demands I whitelist them or disable Adblocker, I block the site. Then I won’t be directed there by a blind link.
