I was horrified when I saw a pharmaceutical company medication advertiser follow me from site to site, and to forums.
Other people have access and use my computer.
I don't want the shoes I looked at on Zappos to pop up on each site i then visit. It's creepy and an invasion of my privacy, like some one constantly ringing my doorbell or phone after I said NO I am not interested in buying.
On the website EmpowHer, i was read info about menopause symptoms,and I then had pharmaceutical for the symptoms of menopause following me like a stalker around on line where ever I went.
Its insane to let advertisers do this to citizens.
It makes us all a "consumer" instead of a "citizen" gathering knowledge.
