Email image bugs like this are nothing new. People have been trying to use them for years. That's why Gmail by default doesn't display images in email until you explicitly tell it to (usually by marking the sender as trusted).
I don't allow images to display in any message except from a very few select senders. Sure, it requires an extra click if I decide I ...
You can tell your browser to skip images from that host, without altering the hosts file.
If you use Chrome:
Open the Settings
Choose "Content settings..."
Click on "Manage Exceptions" under Images
Enter a Regular Expression pattern that matches the host. In this case, the RegEx equivalent of *.yesware.com would be [*.]yesware.com.
Choose "Block" in "...
If you own the website then Google Analytics is the way to go.
If you don't own the website then it'll be a lot trickier. You can use something like Alexa ranks to track traffic generically, but that won't tell you anything about specific traffic.
Or if you'd rather track the traffic you are sending to that page from your link I'd suggest linking to the ...
HTTP cookies are the most common. They are usually written and read by the site you are visiting (the "first party"), but also (depending on your browser and browser settings) written and read by third-party elements on the page you are visiting.
Also common are small image elements, served from various tracking servers (these are common in commercial ...

Do Not Track Me and Disconnect are similar browser extension tools to Ghostery. They will show you trackers on each web page in the browser, and let you block them.
Send yourself an email from https://www.emailprivacytester.com/ and see what (if any) tracking vulnerabilities exist in your context (mail client, browser version, etc.)
Any single tracking vulnerability provides a vehicle for creating a time-stamped read receipt (and, depending on which vulnerability, potentially much more extensive information about your ...
If you don't want third party software like Ghostery or PixelBlock, one way to stop tracking via email is to disable automatic image loading in Gmail. The tracking is usually done via tiny images, so stopping these images from being loaded will prevent your data from being sent back to the tracker.
ITworld has instructions for how to disable automatic image ...
The ad/content blocking extensions, uBlock Origin or AdBlock Plus can block YesWare trackers if they are subscribed to the EasyPrivacy or the Fanboy Ultimate filter list (includes EasyPrivacy). If you only want the filter to block YesWare, add this filter to uBO or ABP: ||app.yesware.com/t/$third-party.
Also, the tracker blocking browser extension, Ghostery ...
I'm not certain of how Facebook may be doing this but I do have some ideas as to what to try. I'll skip over what you've done already.
A good idea would be to use a VPN and a new browser and see if you can make a new account, I would also avoid maximizing the browser window and ensure the browser is not sharing your location data.
Bear in mind that web ...
If I'm not missing something, before logging-in (registering) to Facebook, you was able to see that person's profile photo only and no other data or details. Am I right.
Situation, you're describing may be possibly coming from the fact, that anyone's Facebook profile photo is always public, no matter what. So, the person, that invited you to Facebook may ...
Ghostery is a (but certainly not the only) browser extension that alerts you to certain trackers/companies as you surf online.
Ghostery tracks over 1,400 trackers and gives you a roll-call of the
ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other
companies interested in your activity.
I use it both to block tracking and as an alert ...
