The Baycloud Bouncer Browser Extension
You can review and block trackers on any website with Bouncer, an add-on for the Chrome, Edge or Firefox desktop browsers.
Bouncer enforces your Do Not Track (DNT) preference sent to not only the websites you visit, but to all "third-parties" elements on those sites. Any other server that receives data from the pages you visit will also receive a DNT signal and, if they do not take account of it, Bouncer can stop them tracking you.
Bouncer can tell a site, along with some or all of its third-party elements, that you have agreed to tracking. We call this "whitelisting", and you can do it for a whole site by clicking the Baycloud shield icon inside Bouncer. You can revoke your consent at any time by again clicking the shield icon. You can control what DNT value is sent to individual third-parties by clicking the Do-Not-Track icon alongside each one.
If you visit a site that uses CookieQ or one of our other consent management products, you can revoke or give your consent equally well using Bouncer or with the consent option operated by that site.
If elements pointing to these servers are present on many sites, i.e. are embedded third-parties, then your web activity can be collected often without your knowledge. Bouncer stops this by ensuring persistent cookies containing an UID, either first-party or third-party, are deleted after 2 hours.
Sites you trust may offer you incentives to let them track your activity on some or all sites. It is entirely up to you to accept them or not because the Do Not Track standard, and the way Bouncer enforces it ensures servers have to explain why they use your personal data for in order to ask you to agree.
If you prefer you can use the blocking toggle to completely block particular third-parties across the web. You can selectively unblock or block individual third-parties in the third-party section.
You can give your consent either on the site, if it supports the standard DNT Consent protocol, or within your browser by clicking Bouncer's DNT icon.
Whereas most Ad Blockers are based on the original AdBlock code, Bouncer has a completely new code base, implementing the full W3C Tracking Protection Working Group protocol. If you wish to test the Do Not Track Consent API there is a test page here. If you switch of the Consent Confirm dialog the test will not stop until the entire TPWG API test has completed.
Bouncer does not rely on arbitrary lists, which can quickly become out of date. It does not collect your personal data, or send any information about your web activity to anyone. The only information sent to the sites is simply whether or not you have consented to tracking., using the standard DNT header.
