I just updated the excellent Zeal doc viewer, and now the splash screen has a big advert with 'ads via carbon' written next to it.

It seems Carbon serves custom adverts, so it must be getting data on me from somewhere. Is this allowed? You can disable it in the preferences, but I question what is going on with Carbon.

Thanks for the input, but I can't mark it as an answer as you said 'i don't think it's allowed' rather than 'it is, or it is not, allowed'.
