You may have heard of computer cookies.. but did you know about Flash® cookies?
I delete my cookies all the time.

At times I have changed the settings so that I get a pop-up box asking my permission to recieve a cookie.

There are SO MANY cookies that doing that becomes a real hassle.

But at least that way you have control.. and you also get a sense of what is happening.. eg. cookies from sites that you are not visiting!

BUT!!

Did you know about Flash® cookies?

You don't get a warning!

Every single time you watch a youtube video, for example, you get a flash cookie.

Well.. I do..

If this is new information to you..

..then they are just reading yours.

ALL THE TIME!.. every site you go to!
