    Autonode- Emailed them- Sudden influx of SPAM-Coincidence maybe?

    Hi guys,

    as im sure a few of you have, have you e-mailed them either directly of through their site. I have, and suddenly i recieved unsolicited e-mails from various sources. I wasnt sure it was them at first, but them i emailed them from another account which i know was spam free and a week later, no reply from them but suddenly various e-mails about car audio stuff from various people trying to sell me stuff saying i was 'subscribed' to this.

    Not good

    anyone else have the same thing?

    Well I am not the only one. I get about 300 junk mail's a day. This site also installs a tracking cookie. And don't say you don't, because I did a deep scan and log on to your site and got another one. Here in California it will soon be against the law to install trackers without telling the owner of the PC they you are doing it. And a $10,000.00 fine per incidence. The Fed's are also getting involved.

    I think it is a ridiculous assumption to assume Autonode would do such a thing Live2themaxuk, especially considering the amount of SPAM out there. I have been dealing with Autonode for a while now and I can assure you, they are not that type of company. They don't even use cookies on their website and I can't say that for many companies these days. I would recommend viewing their Privacy Policy because I think it says it all:
    http://www.autonode.com/privacy.html

    I don't receive any SPAM with the email address I used with Autonode.
    They seem to pride themselves on not keeping or sharing personal information. We should support these companies, like Autonode and DigitalWW because there are not many companies who support what we want.

    1st party cookies are nothing, it's 3rd party cookies (like Doubleclick.net) that are dangerous because they can track you across multiple sites. A 1st party cookie (eg, mp3car.com) only tells them who you are when you come back if you set up personal information with them.

    BTW, cookies are not 'installed'. All a cookie is is a text file (usually really short) that gets uploaded to the website you visit each time you come back, and that website sets it up in the first place. Cookies will never be illegal, they're too useful and widespread for legit uses.
