Just wondering what info a regular website can obtain and track me by when I go to it? I'm trying to access a site using proxies and ccleaner but the site seems to pick up I've already been there and made an account there because it blocks areas right after I join again. either the proxies have been used there already (which is possible) or the site tracks something else?
