Windows 10 enables websites to provide access to your browsing data to several advertisers. The advertisers not only get an account of your browsing history, but also several other information such as your language, location, Windows Start menu, search content, local search content, suggestions, etc. The advertisements settings have a lot of customization options. It even enables Advertising IDs to make adds more relevant and interesting for you.
