Are you just clicking "OK" on cookie walls whenever you want to read a website? Here are #3 facts you should know.
(Thread & just a short English version from my German article: sueddeutsche.de/wirtschaft/coo)

Websites want to make you believe it's only about cookies, but in fact it's about building a profile from your behavior. Often websites hold a live auction for the ads and others bid on your profile.
At shops like @Zalando you even agree that your email is uploaded to facebook.

Show thread

Most websites ask for permission to send your activity to several ID companies (eg. Facebook, Google, Adobe or Xandr). Probably each of us has large profiles at 10-100 companies. There are even official marketplaces for profiles.
Advertisers build target audiences from those.

Behavioural profiles are often years old, because they get persistence from logins. When you delete your cookies, you are anonymous until you login on any page. Many websites share your IDs with others ("cookie matching"). After some clicks around everyone recognizes you again.
