    1) Ghostery has been open-source for a few years a now. 2) The software used to be owned by Evidon. After 2017, it has been owned, open-sourced, and maintained by privacy-focus devs. Ghostery does not sell data.

    Ghostery is open-source. What you are referring to the pre-2017 era where Ghostery belonged to a company named Evidon (which had a business model of collecting and selling data to other companies). It was then acquired by Cliqz (which builds a private and independent search engine as well as privacy-focused browsers). Since then the business model has been dropped, code has been open-sourced and Ghostery is now exploring ways to monetize through paid products.

    You need to go into Ghostery. Settings --> Notifications. Uncheck "Makes announcements" and "Has product promotions" They have also removed Ghostery Rewards as of version 8.5.4. So you can opt out of all those notifications.

    As far as "being a little sketchy", you might be referring to the pre-2017 era where Ghostery belonged to a company named Evidon (which had a business model of collecting and selling data to other companies). It was then acquired by Cliqz (which builds a private and independent search engine as well as privacy-focused browsers). Since then the business model has been dropped, code has been open-sourced and Ghostery is now exploring ways to monetize through paid products, as well as client-side offers targeting called rewards.
