Google also tracks your previous searches.  They use something like 30
data points of tracking information even when you aren't logged in
(and many more when you are).

Perhaps you should just assume there is always some agency taking
advantage of you while you are online.  You mission (should you care
to accept it, etc.) is to decide which agency you'd like to have
taking advantage of you then maximize that relationship while
minimizing the others.

btw, have you googled "askew" ?
