RE the ADS
I would like to know how HSN knows what different sites and items I looked at or purchased on different sites not HSN. I am now getting ads from sites I have ordered from in the past . Does anyone know how this is done ? Thank you for any info you have, Take care AGGY788
Aggy, it has to do with the cookies that sites put on your computer when you visit them. Most of the ads (not the commercials) I’ve been getting are either for items I’ve looked at on sites I’ve visited or for similar products. As Pookie said, there are ways to block cookies, but since that isn’t going to make the ads go away, I’d prefer to have ones related to what I’ve looked at–much easier to ignore them.
Thank you Lizzie for the reply. I am a dummy when on the computer. I thought HSN had access to my emails. I too would rather see things I had an interest in. Thanks again AGGY788
Hi Aggy, hope you’re having a good day. Just type “how does a site know what other sites I visit or buy from?” in to your browser search bar. You will get pages of answers and even tips on blocking cookies. 😊
Thank you pookie, I am computer ilitlerate . I will have my son do that fore me. AGGY788
