I opted out of that too and I don't think it has made a blind bit of difference.

If I browse DJ equipment on my lunch, that afternoon every advert I see will be based on DJ equipment.

If I browse for a new bike, that afternoon bicycles galore on the adverts!

It is concerning especially when you have opted out of being followed around the internet!
