There's google tags manager that's 10 times creepier than this, It can log every interaction you have with html tags. Say you visited a shopping website and you hovered over an image of a particular product, this data gets recorded in the database.

There's an extension called NoScript that prevents running of scripts unless you white-flag it. This blocks all scripts from running, initially this will break many sites that you visit.You can then select from the extension which all necessary scripts needs to be run. NoScript then remembers this setting when you visit the website next time. NoScript is installed by default on the Tor browser. Here's a look at my setting for Dev in NoScript
