    A few thoughts:
    • Disable all possible sharing/history options for your Amazon account and be on the lookout for any other opt-out opportunities
    • Considering limiting what things you purchase from Amazon.
    • Consider researching products at other sites with no links to Amazon.
    • Block third-party requests to Amazon hosts when visiting other sites. Watch for first-party looking hosts resolving to Amazon IP Addresses.
    • Block all persistent storage mechanisms for Amazon. Only allow first party session cookies [while you are placing an order].
    • Take steps to protect against any client IP Address based tracking mechanisms. Keep your public IP Address changing and make use of anonymization proxies/networks
    • Avoid apps and app platforms that prevent defensive steps, that send an "advertising ID" and/or WiFi based geolocation, etc.
