<!-- Manual: Add block rules (site fixes, first-party blocking, etc.) for this site (if any), here. -->

## Block rules

### Block Google Ads

Start Page exposes people to Google trackers through its use of Google Adsense as a first-party script. So we block Adsense on the Start Page site.

```mson
- trigger:
  - url-filter: www.startpage.com/adsense/search/async-ads.js
  - load-type: first-party
- action:
  - type: block
```
