Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E privacy-breach-google-adsense

This package creates a privacy breach by using Google AdSense. Google AdSense is a service run by Google that allows publishers of websites to automatically serve advertisements. Unfortunately, it requires tracking and breaching the privacy of web users.

This tag can also indicate the use of the related obsolete privacy breaching software, Urchin WebAnalytics.

Note that using Google AdSense in a local copy of a page is a violation of the Google AdSense terms of use. This violation renders this package not distributable in Debian, and is thus a serious bug.

Please replace any scripts, images or other remote resources with non-remote resources. It is preferable to replace them with text and links but local copies of the remote resources are also acceptable as long as they don't also make calls to remote services. Please ensure that the remote resources are suitable for Debian main before making local copies of them.
