This probably comes as no surprise to anyone, but most websites track you while visiting them.  This is an interesting article..  If you go to the link, and look at the list of some sites that were identified as tracking you, wargaming.net is listed...

 

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/11/an-alarming-number-of-sites-employ-privacy-invading-session-replay-scripts/

 

https://webtransparency.cs.princeton.edu/no_boundaries/session_replay_sites.html   (show 100 entries, it is on page 2).

 

Not that this means much, but I thought I'd pass it along.

They track you on what you do while you are on their page so that topics you visited are not bold or telling others you are online and which topics your currently viewing but once you leave their web page the tracking stops.

Oh crap, Spotify is on to me. I knew I shouldn't have listened to that Merle Hagard song and the turned around with Insane Clown Posse. I'm screwed. What are my wife and kids going to think of me?

I used to as well.  But then Firefox did an update that disabled Noscript, and wouldn't let me easily go back to the old version.  Not sure if it works on Chrome.

I'm using it on Firefox as I type, though it does work very differently from before.  You might just need to wipe it and reinstall it.

There's nothing there, in your case, to protect, so you can hang that back up.

I make it my policy to never go to any link that obvious tracking algorithms are suggesting you visit nor do I ever buy anything from these sites.
