If you thought Facebook and Google were creepy with how much they know about you — think again. A new study suggests that the two companies know what kind of porn do you watch.

“Our results show that tracking is endemic to pornography sites: 93 [per cent] of the pages to leak the data from the user to a third party, and all the pages that are leaking the data to an average of seven domains, of the 79 [percent] to have a third-party cookie (the track); on the page, a cookie is used, there is an average of nine out of the cookies; and it is only 17 [percent] the sites that are encoded in the network are adversaries to any interception of login and the password,” the researchers wrote in the study.

Even if a person were to enter “incognito mode” on their browser, which means that their results are not likely to be maintained, that is, they have always had, the researchers found.

With the help of a hypothetical person by the name of “Jack,” the researchers note, is that the incognito mode, this means that the history is not stored, on Jack’s computer.

The sites that he visits, as well as, where applicable, third-party trackers, you can observe and record their online actions,” the study added. “These third-parties may also conclude that Jack’s sexual interests, and the Urls of the sites that are open. They will be able to make use of what they have agreed to these interests, for marketing purposes, or to build up a profile of the consumer. They will be able to sell the data. Jack has no idea that the third-party data transfers are to occur, when he was browsing the videos.”

The study, which looked at 22,484-and sex-related sites, was conducted by researchers at Carnegie Mellon, and the University of Pennsylvania, and Microsoft, which is competing with Google and Oracle in cloud-computing services.

Google had a tracker in 74% of the sites, the Oracle had a tracker, at 24 per cent, and Facebook is kept to 10 percent, according to the study.

“The fact that it is a mechanism for an adult site to keep track of and is thus comparable to, say, an online retail should be a huge red flag,” study co-author, Elena, Maris, told the New York Times.

Both Google and Facebook did not deny the findings of the study, when asked about it.

In a statement, released to Fox News, Joe Osborne, a Facebook spokesperson said the company does not want to adult websites with the help of the tools, such as those that are in conflict with societal norms. “When we learn that these types of web sites or apps to make use of our tools, we push into them.,” Osborne added.

A Google spokesman told Fox News, “We don’t allow Google-Ads on sites with adult or mature content, and we don’t allow target advertising and advertising profiles based on a user’s sexual interests, or are related to online activities. In addition, the tags for our ad services are never to share personally identifiable information with Google.”
