PCA Adverts

I tend to click on a few ads on the PCA site; as they are a source of some revenue which helps to keep these extraordinary forums free to all users.
Just wondering though as to how it works.
If I click on, say, a Dell ad does the Dell site get info that its been hit from PCA?

Technically it's perfectly possible to program this into a link - so if they want to keep a check, they can and will do.

Click fraud is a problem as a result.
