Adobe Flash Shared Objects

Adobe Flash Shared Object is a cookie-like, client-side data storage facility used by Flash applications. Local Shared Objects are pretty much like same-origin cookies, retrieved by an application running on the same page, while Remote Shared Objects are stored by the application on a third-party server.

Publisher identifiers

The website uses the following advertisement publisher ids:

Sub-resources

Most web pages load a number of sub-resources such as images, style sheets (CSS), JavaScript files, web fonts, audio or video files and other web pages in frames. Each of these sub-resources may be loaded from the same server (first-party resource) or servers belonging to other parties (third-party resources). In the latter case, the third-party will see a request coming from your browser with the information on the originating page and it can set its own cookies, both of which are frequently used for user tracking. Note that the cookies set by these sub-resources are already recorded in our cookie statistics for this page.

The page loads 0 external JavaScript files and 0 external CSS files. Out of these 0 scripts and 0 style-sheets are using Sub-Resource Integrity (SRI).

Symbols

  • Resource securely loaded over TLS
  • Resource insecurely loaded over plaintext HTTP. This is OK on non-TLS pages, but should never happen on TLS sites. Read more...
  • A third-party resource. It may perform its own tracking on your requests and receive partial information about your activities on the original website
  • Resource with reputation warnings
  • Blacklisted domain
  • Suspicious pattern detected

Web Plugins

Historically, web plugins such as Adobe Flash, Java applets, Silverlight etc were used to deliver rich user experience to users in HTML-only browsers. As HTML5 support became more widespread offering the same experience but in standards-based manner, web browser vendors decided to gradually abandond support for these plugins so that in long-term website owners should thus plan to replace the plugin-based functionality with one based on HTML5 features.
