That's just a silly idea...
- other websites don't link to the client, but do link to the website
- it's highly unlikely that you're using the same software components for PVP.net browsing and general webbrowsing, so there isn't the strong link there needed to make 3rd party cookies and tracking pixels effective (for just PVP.net they could just look through their weblogs. I really should download and look through my weblogs again to see what oddball search engine search terms got people to my website... )
So most likely your LoL website browsing getting correlated with your browsing of other websites that are using the same 3rd party cookie/tracking pixel service.

Third party tracking pixels and cookies are not designed for tracking one-step distant incoming traffic because they already get that information from the HTTP referer. What they are going to want to be tracking is what you do outside your LoL time - where do you do online shopping, what hobbies or interests do you follow, are lots of players strongly interested in politics, etc for the purposes of getting sponsors and selling advertisements for their season 3 weekly circuit.

The reason however that they would harvest this information through the client rather than the website is that the population that visits the website is not a majority and is not representative of the playerbase as a whole. If they collect only from the website they are only going to see the most dedicated chunk of the playerbase rather than a realistic view of what all their players are interested in and doing.

What's the big deal about this whole new contract thing and why are there people saying they don't want a "big brother system" (obviously I know what that is and that it's bad but can someone explain it in layman's terms?)

Yeah, while I do play your game, piss off Riot. Like other smart users, I use tracking cookie blocking programs. Already get enough of this tracking **** from google alone.
