ClickBank has tested most of the major internet browsers.
When clickbank affiliates use their affiliate Hoplink the way they are meant to (for example: the Hoplink is not
embedded in an image or frame) then it will not affect the functionality of the ClickBank 1st party cookies.
Clickbank know that people can delete their cookies on their own and they have stated this...
"Through analyzing the millions of Hoplink URL's that ClickBank receives, we have found that almost all users complete their purchase within the same browser session within 1 hour. In most cases, even if the user happens to erase their cookies, ClickBank’s proprietary tracking methods often match the consumer back to the referring affiliate. ClickBank’s proprietary tracking methods are considered a trade secret and will not be shared.
ClickBank will continue to test and retest new internet browsers and updates to old browsers. Our goal is to provide a consistent and reliable service for everyone."
Now it is possible to track peoples IP range etc.... but in the end.. We can not really do much about it anyway.
Let's hope Clickbank are as smart as they say they are..lol
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
