  * “A major source of business for Evidon is selling data that helps ad companies ensure their compliance with AdChoices, a self-regulatory program supposed to help people opt out of targeted ads. Some experts say AdChoices is confusing to consumers, and it has been criticized by U.S. and EU policymakers. ‘Evidon has a financial incentive to encourage the program's adoption and discourage alternatives like Do Not Track and cookie blocking as well as to maintain positive relationships with intrusive advertising companies,’ says Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford grad student and privacy advocate active in efforts to develop a standard ‘Do Not Track’ feature for web browsers.” [Source](http://lifehacker.com/ad-blocking-extension-ghostery-actually-sells-data-to-a-514417864)
