I think that is what cookies on websites are for..tracking and eventually tracing your emial and other things.

When it comes to things like this, I err on the side of paranoia. I don’t use the “autofill” option because it stores my name, address & phone number to be captured by others!!! When in doubt, I leave it out!!!
