The are about two very famous ways in which you share your data, one is through cookies, sometimes you get into a site and a pop up window shows and they make some gibberish and give you the option to click ‘Accept’
The moment you click that ‘Accept’ you have given the site the opportunity to get some less important data like How you use the site, the things you search for etc and when the site gets this, it knows the kind of adverts to show you

- A new blank Safari window will open. It looks like any others, except the address bar is darker. Safari will also display that this is a private browsing window in the top.
