Google Dropped Ban on Personally Identifiable Web Tracking


Per ProPublica:


On the practical side of this, google has two separate menus for conducting targeted advertising opt-out. One for targeted advertising when you are logged in, and one for targeted advertising when you are signed out of google.

Now, there are a LOT of caveats. They use a cookie based system, so blocking their "don't advertise when you track me" cookies, using a different browser, different computer, etc. (even when logged in) breaks your opting out.

Here is the link to the help page that walks you through all of it.


Thanks for those links. It seems that corporate promises are rather fluid.
