If you have ever wondered how advertisers know your online shopping habits and search habits, or how they seem to be following you around the web, it’s simple: online tracking and the collection of all your data. One browser service is taking action to stop it, and this announcement should be of interest to everyone who values their privacy and data. Here’s an excerpt from a Mozilla blog post:
“Anyone who isn’t an expert on the internet would be hard-pressed to explain how tracking on the internet actually works. Some of the negative effects of unchecked tracking are easy to notice, namely eerily-specific targeted advertising and a loss of performance on the web. However, many of the harms of unchecked data collection are completely opaque to users and experts alike, only to be revealed piecemeal by major data breaches. In the near future, Firefox will — by default — protect users by blocking tracking while also offering a clear set of controls to give our users more choice over what information they share with sites.”
If you are not using Firefox, try it out. Read the full post here.
We are so excited to be working with the team at Carfagna’s Market on their new website. While we have shopped there many times, we felt a bit of research was in order. Afterall, it’s part of the job. But for this project we get the added benefit of eating & drinking our research! Spent time at Carfagna’s (Col, OH) to learn more about the market’s amazing food and wine and great meat department with really friendly staff. This delicious “research” should help the new site design come to life!
The Dublin Barber Shoppe has been tradition in Dublin, OH since 1938. In fact, it has the distinction of being the city’s oldest business still in operation. Now owned and operated by Craig Price, the shop offers haircuts and beard trims to guys of all ages. While it remains true to the core of a barber shop, their approach is quite contemporary. And that’s where we come in.
We are designing a website for DBS that with an online scheduling app. Customers can access from anywhere and setup their appointment. Can’t wait to showcase the final product.
Thanks Craig and Martha for choosing Trusty & Company – we love working with you!
