TF? No... we (the royal "We") use cookies to keep track of read/unread threads, logging you in automatically, crap like that... Advertisement data isn't our fancy as that's used by partners to display ads, and not to registered users, so there too, not users.

TF isn't exactly the organization you need to be concerned about monitoring your activity...



...says the low post count mod who seemingly posts in the most 'random' of threads

That paper boat gallery still around btw? muahahahaha

The only things TF logs are whatever you put in threads as they're stored in the DB.

As for cookies...The only cookies directly from TF are related to your login session.

Here's the objects stored in my current session, according to Chrome:



And here's the only things red flagged (blocked) by uBlock:


I don't have Privacy Badger installed at work, otherwise I'd post a screenshot of it's results as well.

Edit: Here's Privacy Badger. There's 2 additional domains under the "Don't seem to be tracking you" section, which are:
edge.quantserve.com
tech-forums.net

Use uBlock instead of ABP.

And any add-ons will depend on what browser you're using.

I'm currently using FF under 32 Bit Mint Nix. I guess it depends on what I want from say an Add On but when I posted I was thinking Security, that sort of thing. I'm not really sure whats out their.
