I use the service called Stat Counter. It gives me general idea about what visitors like to see and what devices and browsers are in use. I have no way of knowing who you are.
Although I don’t place ads on this site, Stat Counter uses “Marketing Cookies” which studies your behavior on my site for targeted advertisement.

How to reject unwanted cookies
This can be done by following methods:
Via your browser setting
Please allow me to refer you to:
Managing Cookies at aboutcookies.org.uk.
Alternate opt out
NAI Consumer Opt Out —> Manage My Browser’s Opt Outs
This is a method suggested by Stat Counter. The browser check takes a bit of time I have to say.
Ultimate opt out
If this is too cumbersome, I understand. You can reject Third Party Cookies altogether from cookie setting page.
