So I have removed Google Chrome and have been using DDG exclusively for the last year or so and yet when I visit websites and an ad is served up, it is typically an add about something I have recently searched.

Do I need to adjust my settings or something?

Maybe it is not the fault of DDG but if you don't disable 3rd party cookies you can still be tracked across non-DDG sites. Since you might be looking for stuff similar to what you searched on non-DDG sites, advertisers can still learn your preferences.
