Does Flipp sell your information?

I just noticed yesterday I used Flipp to price match an item that was cheaper at Oceans. Now, I'm not Asian but an hour or so later I was playing "Scramble with Friends" game app. I noticed at the bottom of the game app where they sometimes display ads there was an ad. The first ad was of RBC. The only thing was that the letters in the ad were Chinese. The next ad was Wind and again letters in Chinese. In the past this never happened as all the ads would be in English. Since I clicked on Oceans flyer did Flipp sell that information?

Probably. But it wouldn't happen that fast.
My guess is some other type of tracking that's already part of an ad network.

How much does flipp cost? Exactly.

If you're not paying for it; you're the product.

Your first worry should be the fact that you are seeing f'in ads. Block them.
