Q ads on the Daily Mail now.

[ Edited ]

Q is advertising on the Daily Mail. The ads are personalized, change every couple of seconds and show items I've been looking at in addition to other items. I just checked and the items come from your QVC Browsing History. If you touch the ad you will be taken right to QVC. This was totally unexpected by me. It's good that they are branching out this way. I do wish that whenever I leave QVC they would log me out because I don't know if whoever and however the ads are set up, whether they can see my account and what data remains with this company when they link me here. Other big companies were also having ads, including Ford.

Actually, Google (or similar service) puts the ad there.  They decide what goes where and the advertiser - QVC in this case - pays them.  It's how Google makes most of its money.

@NYCLatinaMe @I wish I could block all cookies but I'm always stuck allowing strictly necessary cookies or I can't access the sites. Is there a setting on my google account where I can block this. I've already blocked almost everything in my iPad settings. I've set it to block cross site tracking.

I don't know that one always can.  You have to read the verbiage in the little boxes on the websites that you visit, and I click on stricly necessary cookies, or no cookies if the option is available.  Some websites allow you to block all cookies.  I think maybe safari, which is my bowser has a setting where I can state a preference not to have targeted ads.  So maybe that means the cookie does not track you.  But maybe not, and not perfect.  I don't worry too much, just try to minimize.

@NYCLatinaMe @The iPad does give you the option to block all cookies, I think it said in Safari, but when I looked into using this option the articles all said that websites I used won't remember my passwords and logins so I haven't switched that button to off.

A heads up to everyone.


Here on QVC's site, there's a Privacy Request. It's 
 entitled "YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES." It's on the very bottom section of the home page. I'll be checking into it tomorrow.

Re: Q ads on the Daily Mail now.

I've seen a few Q ads on a TV channel.......I don't recall which program, though.

 

It could have (allegedly) been Co*rt TV, but, 'make no mistake', I'm not completely sure if that is the program/channel.

 

Anyway, at the time, I was pleasantly surprised to see QVC advertising.

 

 

 

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).
