For those who do use Flash or who know some that do;
this is exactly what needs to be done if you are using it
or for those who ignore all of this..!
Best to avoid using such spyware ,hélas.

Adobe Flash is, in my opinion, the most ubiquitous spyware in the world and no products detect it as such. The reason it goes undetected is that it also has numerous legitimate uses, however, there is growing evidence that indicates significant abuse....

If you have Adobe Flash on your computer, and most of you do, you are probably being spied on and Adobe does their best not to let you know or do anything about it. Fundamentally, rich video content is only the drug Adobe wants you to get hooked on, but make no mistake, one of the main purposes of Flash is apparently to secretly compromise your privacy. Flash cookies allow online advertising networks to covertly and uniquely track your internet use. This is not only a PC problem, but affects Linux, Mac, and mobile devices that support Flash. Flash cookies provide advertising networks with much better tracking than normal cookies do. Because a Flash cookie can effectively identify you (or your computer) uniquely it becomes very easy for internet ad agencies to profile you specifically.

IIRC Gnash unfortunately isn't really maintained anymore. Html5 is an alternative but at least uses DRM now, too.
