Emails connected to what I search for?

Hello, I'm getting emails which coincidentally match some of the browsing on the internet. For instance, today at 16.10 I talked about weight on a thread, at 17.10 I have an email advertising a weight-loss product? Simply coincidence? That is the first weight-related one I've had. Is Phorm definitely not being used?

definitely not Phorm.  but Google very quickly get this forum onto their search data base.  Nobody should be able to guess your e-mail.  But it does happen - somebody hacked the PN address database in 2007

I'm quite confident that this will be nothing short of coincidence. Having said that, you haven't posting your email address on any forums have you? (or anywhere else that's publically viewable for that matter).

Definitely not.
