Tracking cookies, like regular cookies, are small files that get deposited onto your computer's hard drive as you browse the Internet.

If you fill out forms online with your real name and contact information, click on banners and then purchase an item, or fill out sweepstakes or contests forms, then it's possible that major online advertisers know your name and have associated it with your IP address and other information.

MEDIAPLEX is coming from eBay. Best thing to do is everyone protest this. eBay was using Doubleclick and now they are using Mediaplex to bug the hell out of everyone. Maybe time to go back to shopping locally and [REMOVED WORD] thinking globally?
