end the era of customer privacy abuse with aesirx

Have you ever received advertisements from a strange website even though you never clicked, followed, or heard anything about it? For sure, this irritates you, yet you don't know how to handle it. The most likely offender is tracking cookies; an invasive form of customer privacy abuse. This article will surprise you with how data abuse has dominated the online world for a decade, yet could soon be coming to an end.

First-party data

First-party data is customer data collected and owned by the same organization. This data type is used to create ads, content, and contextual experiences that are more meaningful. First-party data is collected from:

  • Behaviors and actions of customers
  • Purchase, search, and contact history
  • Geographical and demographical data
  • Phone, email, and SMS interactions

To make it simpler, first-party data is data gathered from your visitors through digital channels that you own. Those people have given their consent so that you can use their data to get in touch with and engage them, which is trustworthy, problem-free, and totally LEGAL.

Third-party data

Third-party data doesn’t have any direct link to the customers. Usually, aggregators collect this data to sell it to other companies. Third-party data is collected from:

  • Demographics
  • Behaviors
  • Contextual

What makes this data collection a problem is how data aggregators obtain it from many sources and compile it into a single dataset, not directly from the customers. This means customers do not know where it comes from, so there is nothing sure about its security or accuracy. And this is NOT LEGAL.


Internet browsers employ cookies to track, personalize, and save data about each web visitor's session. Simply put, a "session" implies the amount of time you spend on a website. And once you accept the cookie, you will be tracked.

Imagine living in a neighborhood where there are cameras everywhere that track you and record everything you do. Those camera devices are cookies. However, you don't know how your footage will be used. Will they edit and then use it afterward for any improper purposes? There is nothing to be sure of.

A decade of customer privacy abuse must end now!

In the past decade, Big Tech has revolutionized the industry by setting new benchmarks for data misuse. Their business model of providing free services in exchange for gathering users' personal information and behavioral data has been a huge success. Big Tech companies such as Facebook and Google became offenders who continually monitor, listen to, and watch us for their own profit. Due to the systematic abuse, their entire business model is based on deceptive marketing strategies.

Consider the travel and hospitality industry as another example. With their customer data abuse, they are some of the worst offenders using third-party tracking cookies. Arriving in plain text on unsecured emails to sell ads and advertise their products, they show little respect for customer privacy; this current reality must stop.

Third-party JavaScripts are also a big risk factor. These snippets of code or scripts can be inserted into any site directly by third-party vendors. A good example is ad scripts - they generate and display targeted ads on publisher websites making them unpopular for users, yet they earn money for web publishers. Facebook and Google have been doing just that for years - gathering user data through the use of third-party JavaScripts in order to develop adverts and increase revenue.

There is now an increasing number of devices and browsers already preventing cookies and cross-site tracking, and the good news is all browsers will do the same soon. Since that includes third-party JavaScripts, it will soon all be blocked. Users will no longer be able to use remote third-party analytics (which is why first-party is the future of technology).

There is at least one exception to the rule, however. Google Chrome. In January 2020, Google Chrome posted an announcement on ‘making third party cookies obsolete’ (1). Google explained that this plan was built to enhance privacy on its web. As they mentioned, this move will offer users more accurate browser cookie restrictions. Sounds like an intriguing plan!

However, there would be nothing to discuss if the CEO of Google hadn’t recently announced that the plan would be delayed until 2024 (2). This has already been the second delay from Google since the first delay in 2021. This means Google Chrome will not yet become legal. And soon, they are going to become the ONLY browser in the industry pioneering the age of abusive marketing.

Will there be any more delays? Why not stop it now?
