One solution to wreck privacy-hating websites: Flood them with bogus info using browser tools

But, does it work?

Question: It seems that in order to view any content on soo many of the sites I visit lately require google or amazon resources and scripts to be enabled. Although I try to enable only the minimum kit necessary on a site-by-site basis; with the great number of ordinary sites being hosted on AWS or running google resources and tools for their functionality...does it also mean goog and amazon can scrape info like ip address, cpu id, and other personal identifying session info? Does it do any good to cloak yourself with script-blockers, do-not-track tools if one is forced to disable protections to get to plain-vanilla product info sites? In other words...is this a thing?
