Only, because it costs nothing, it is not in vain. This is especially true in the Internet: Some companies, even whole industries, that a good living that entice users with Free services, and to learn in return as much as possible about you. The Accumulation and systematic analysis of data is the business model of advertising-based companies like Google and Facebook. The show is buzzing with business, analyzes every click, every purchase and every comment. An investigation showed that Google and Facebook analyse in each case a quarter of the world’s data traffic in the Internet.

And as is known now, is not even on porn sites in front of you. No, not even when you start the incognito or Private mode.

9 out of 10 porn sites give data

researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pennsylvania and Microsoft have 22.484 porn sites on so-called Tracking Tools investigated, which are small programs that evaluate each of your actions and data with third parties for the rich. The surprising finding: 93 percent of the sites had installed such Tools.

according to The study, Google had left in 74 percent of cases, Tracker, Oracle in 24 percent. Facebook is represented at least ten percent of the surveyed sites, the company is actually for his prudish company policy. On its own Portal Facebook does not tolerate even the image of a nursing mother.

The data are extremely sensitive,

. Because the Tracker can assign the user on the basis of positive characteristics, such as the IP address or the identification number of the device.

The results are also in other respects shocking: Only 17 percent of porn sites were encrypted, in addition, only 17 percent had a privacy policy. This is tricky, considering that it is extremely sensitive user data. “The porn sites should think more about how they deal with the data, because these are similar to sensitive health information,” said the lead author, Elena Maris of the New York Times, which first reported on the case.

porn confessions All watch porn, nobody talks about it. Why not? The Google and Facebook

What the companies do with the porn portals, data collected, say, is not known. Oracle, one of the largest suppliers of personalized user profiles, not expressed to the “New York Times”. Google said on demand, not using data. Generally speaking, no Google allow advertising on sites with adult content. “Personalized advertising and advertising profiles, which are based on the sexual interests of a user or related activities on the Internet” were prohibited, the company said. Similarly, Facebook said.

However, even if the firms do not use the data, there can be detours, a lot price. According to the study, it can be seen in 45 percent of the URLs, which content are offered on the visited website. On the basis of the web address used in the phrases one learns about from Server Logs about the sexual preferences of the users, which are aware. Since Google is offering with Chrome the most popular Browser in the world, to land the data in this way in Mountain View.

Due to data leak, Facebook has to pay a fine in the billions “is a lot of personal“

A fundamental Problem is the fact that porn sites similar Tracking methods, such as the online trade, it should be said one of the researchers of the “New York Times“. “Because you not only selects a sweater and to see how he followed through the entire network. This is much more personal.”

“allow data to be very intimate insight into the Psyche of people,” said the Internet activist Katharina Nocun in an interview with the star. “In some areas, I would wish me that, in principle, never data collected. On pages that deal with sensitive topics such as diseases, sexuality or religion, should be allowed advertising a personalized Tracking.” Because you could never be a hundred percent sure that the data collected will be used only for the intended purpose, and stay where they should.
