Yes, everytime it refreshes a banner it links to hipmarket to load it, so what?
Do you have a cookie from hipmarket on your computer, or are you freaking out over nothing?
If you're that concerned, you can use private browsing mode in most browsers these days.
You say you're concerned, so you should have those set, so you don't get worried like this.
BTW, we are currently testing different banner delivery methods so your mileage may vary.
But when it refreshes, it's in an iframe, so no cookie necessary.
If you click on a banner, then it's up to the advertising site as to whether they put a cookie on your computer.
IC Mag like most websites does put a cookie on your computer if ask for the site to remember you when you login.
Also while we're at it, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that takes effect next week in Europe, pretty much doesn't affect ICMag.
It concerns personal privacy, but it is geared to websites that require you use your real name when you register, which we don't do.
We also advise ppl to not use their primary email addy, esp. if it contains a real name to register here or any website.
Anonymity provides a certain amount of privacy. We are not Facebook!
