Does the ZFT sells our information of what we post (and who knows what else) to these companies or is it something they can't avoid (i.e. having bots logged to the site)?

I could not let unnoticed that my Y account makes videos suggestions after stuff I posted on the ZF :shock:

Usually it's something they can't avoid unless phpbb has a specific way to disable them from searching through the forum. Some are beneficial for driving people to the site though.

It's why I've blocked my Youtube cookies. Works a charm.
