FTC Sanctions Ad Network for History Sniffing
The FTC complaint states that depending on the domains a consumer visited, Epic assigned the consumer an advertising interest segment. These interest segments included categories such as "Incontinence," "Arthritis," "Memory Improvement," and "Pregnancy-Fertility Getting Pregnant." After an interest segment was assigned, Epic targeted ads to consumers based on those interests.
