Track the sites that are tracking you. Collusion is a free extension for Firefox that records every time you’re tracked online, so you can see who is tracking you and try to work out why. The Mozilla Foundation says the extension is intended to help teach users about online tracking.

“Not all tracking is bad, ” says Collusion’s site at Mozilla.org “ but most tracking happens without users’ consent and without their knowledge. That’s not okay. It should be you who decides when, how and if you want to be tracked. Collusion will be a powerful tool to help you do that.”

When you visit a website, third-party trackers (cookies, web beacons, flash cookies, pixel tags, etc) get stored on your computer.

How many trackers exist in any given website depends on how many the website owner has decided to include. Some websites will have over 60 trackers, belonging to a multitude of companies, while others might have only one - perhaps to track visitor numbers, or see where these visitors are coming from, or to enable a certain functionality. Some might have none at all. 

Not all trackers are necessarily tied to companies tracking your browsing habits - but when you 'accept cookies', you're saying ok to all the trackers that are there - including those feeding information back to companies.
