I'm relatively new on this site but why do I always get the Dating website banners come up whilst loggin in via my work browser? I never get these when I'm on this website at home?

a) you only browse dating websites at work.
b) someone else using your work pc (?) browses dating websites.
c) there is a major difference in location (where the PC access the wider world on the net) between the two.
d) there is a difference in how cookies/browsing/security is set up between the two computers.

You log into Google or Facebook on the home computer and they know your ad profile. When you log into Google or Facebook on the work computer they serve up ads based on the profile.
