Even though we’ve seen day-after-Thanksgiving sales gain steam in markets that don’t celebrate the holiday—including France, Norway and the U.K.—don’t count on U.S. retailers to jump on Singles Day as a way to preempt Black Friday with even earlier offers for American consumers anytime soon. That’s because even though Alibaba has called Singles Day the 11.11 Global Shopping Festival since 2015, it isn’t exactly global-global—and it may never be.
'''jeannot52:''' SweetIM is a totally different, but seemingly as invasive, pest. You can "Google" it to get information. Removal of "Default Tab" is the key in ridding your system of the culprit that installs the "Search here" tab as posted by the OP, '''''bd67807'''''. Be careful when downloading and installing applications/add-ons from the internet as some include such extra items. Most, but not all, will give the user an opportunity during installation to un-check items to not install or to not change search engines. The add-ons on the Firefox/Mozilla add-ons site are fairly clean from this kind of pest. *https://addons.mozilla.org/
Google is everywhere. It gathers information to power its massive advertising arm. Google is tracking you around the internet, building an individual advertising profile to better serve you ads. Some users don’t mind, reasoning that if they’re going to see ads (advertising essentially powers the internet), they might as well see ones relevant to their interests.
I have worked in digital strategy and advertising for my entire adult life. I buy advertising based on the data that Google and everyone else is gathering. Like millions of dollars a year. And I can tell you first hand that the tracking data is garbage, and frankly, at least for the foreseeable future, not something you should really be worried about, with one caveat. Advertisers are not the enemy, government and political agents are. ie. cambridge analytica. That is how you use this data to do harm.. We see literally thousands of advertisements a day. Does it *really* matter if my search history led to me seeing a different banner today?

Hi BKJ84 and others! I M U S T thank you IMMENSELY for this solution. I worket my butt for a whole night fighting EXACTLY the same crap which invaded both IE9 and FF17. Any possible malware remover I could try did not help., although I did manage prior to it to successfully remove ANY program starting with "SWEETXXX" from my hard disk disk via both W7 remover (control panel) anf the free CCleaner "uninstall".

Admittedly, I do use Chrome, so naturally Google Search, but I nonetheless agree that Google knows far too much about us all. That's partly why I don't put too much through Gmail/calendar/all that jazz. I should probably give DuckDuckGo a try though. For now, and I'm sure this is the same for much of the population, I'm programmed to automatically go to Google.

Katzman, for one, doesn’t think the additional data will do much to change the process of sifting through that information. Google is “always trying to make searches more semantically smart,” he said, but “applying to college is not like buying a toaster.” It’s a decision that is made over weeks or months through a complex process informed by financial-aid promises, standardized-test scores, and insight from counselors or other advisers.

But that’s not to say Singles Day is limited to China: Ecommerce company Lazada, which Alibaba bought in March, is preparing to host its first 11/11 event in six countries in Southeast Asia this year. And marketers outside China have already made moves to reach the 1.4 billion people who live there—Alibaba boasts that international brands including Adidas, L’Oréal, Mattel, Mondelez, Nike, P&G and Unilever participated in 2017.

as far as email and browsers go.. yeah use a vpn, use a browser that doesnt track your stuff, thats fine. But none of the "secure" email services do well with mail@yourowndomain so your options are use gsuite or microsoft or leave your email on the most insecure place possible, the same server your website is on? no thanks. ill stick with the company that is big enough to keep blowing money on security as i am more worried about other people getting my information than i am of facebook sending me ads based on things ive spoken out loud near my phone or searched for.


"If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines—including Google—do retain this information for some time and it's important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities." Eric Schmidt.

I gave Bing a chance because of the rewards. That was a year ago. I learned 2 important lessons over those 12 months: Bing's rewards are terrible, but Bing search results are worse. I am glad to be back to Google search. But I agree with the premise of this article: with so much data running through Google tools, individual privacy is at risk. Time to find a new browser and/or a new search engine.
Not exactly. Lee Credit Express does provide auto financing through its own finance company. This allows us to finance customers who can't get an auto loan from a traditional lender because  of bad credit, which is what a 'buy here pay here' dealer does. But that is where the similarities end. Customers don't have to make payments at our dealerships, they simply mail their payments to the finance company. And unlike most Maine 'buy here pay here' dealers, we have newer cars and service contracts that protect your investment. We consider it  'buy here pay here' done right.
