how do they know what i search for
this has been going on for a long time.

but as an example, over the last few days i did google searches for someone called Rosie, then i did a search for suzanne by koenard cohen.

then each next day i got spam from rosie and from suzanne.

i know it's not spyware because i was using a ipad, sometimes my phone, sometimes my laptop. it is defentieoy not malware. i've been in IT 20 years but i can't figure out how they are doing this tracking. I have safari on ipad config to not accept third party cookies, same in chrome.
