The Ad industry isnt listening

Nor are the people placing ads.

This conversation has been ongoing for years, and given the fact that my machine can be "fingerprinted" by sites - isnt this in effect "personally identifiable data"?

It would be interesting to see if GDPR could be used against those responsible for setting the tracking beacons and cookies etc.

Its about time parasites of the advertising industry were taken to task for the excesses of the industry.

I know people who still have data caps, adverts that are data heavy with auto run video and sound, scripting etc are theft of that data allowance. Sites that allow thier content to be over-run by ad madness deserve to go to the wall.
