    I want to know when the maker of this plugin is going to remove http://map.media6degrees.com/orbserv/hbpix?pixId=2869&curl=
    I did not know this plugin was feeding info to this site
    & I'm pissed off to no end that my readers & fans were being tracked by other sources then my own on my website.

    this plugin in no way toled me this was going on or that they were going to do this.

    Almost all widgets and websites (including this one) use 3rd party cookies to help measure, sustain and improve the products. AddToAny is the only widget that offers a publisher-side opt-out.

    If you prefer to turn off 3rd party cookies, you can go to Settings > Share/Save Buttons > Additional Options box and paste in this code: a2a_config.no_3p=1;

    etardwebcam,

    In addition to turning off 3rd party cookies as instructed by micropat above, if your readers would like to opt out of the Media6degrees cookie please direct them to the NAI opt out page (http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp).

    yea well its kind of hard to trust someone that does things in a not soo cool way.
    I feel the maker of this plugin should have toled everyone about this
    within the plugin & on there wordpress.org plugin page.

    as for the a2a_config.no_3p=1
    I feel that should be a check box of some knid in the add-to-any plugin settings page, so endusers who are not hardcore tech ppl
    can set it & also have a description telling the enduser what this is all about so they know what it is & can pick to have it on or off.

    as for me i feel i can not longer trust the maker of this plugin
    & will not be readding it to my website.
