What Are Website Tracking Tools?
Millions of websites use tracking tools to gather data about users and their online activities.
The Meta Pixel, for example, can track the actions people take on a website, such as what they click on, what pages they view, and even the information they enter on the site. This data is passed along to Meta, and both the social media giant and the website operator can use the information to better target users with advertisements.
Since these tracking tools operate behind the scenes, website visitors may not be aware that their actions are being tracked or that their information is being shared with third parties. For this reason, concerns have been raised about the use of tracking tools on websites, especially in situations where users enter their medical information online.
What Information Is Everyday Health Possibly Tracking?
Much can be learned about an individual from their online activity, and it’s believed that Everyday Health may have collected subscribers’ sensitive medical and health information by tracking their interactions with its website.
For instance, if an EverydayHealth.com member logs into their account and searches for a health condition, symptom, treatment or drug, a tracking tool could link that information with the particular user and pass it along to Meta.
The tracking tool may also record a member’s answers to a quiz or questionnaire, what health courses they take, or what they type when searching for a healthcare provider on EverydayHealth.com.
Put together, these pieces of data could possibly reveal sensitive and confidential health-related information about Everyday Health subscribers that they never meant to disclose.
