Of course I'd like a free or inexpensive tracking setup for my ebay listings and for my website too. Does anyone know how to tell if a free tracking setup is also spyware? Of course they have to use cookies. I'm not concerned about that. But I'm concerned that I might inadvertantly use something that spies on my visitors and reports on their overall browsing for market research purposes.

There are more and more such spyware programs. I use spybot software to clean them off my hard drive at least once a month. Antivirus software doesn't take care of this.

Any information or advice?

Do they have a privacy policy? If they are legit, they should have one stating what they do with the information gathered. If they don't have one, I'd be suspicious.
