Social trackers on banks: Ally bank

There are 12 trackers on that have nothing to do with my relation with ally.

These are advertisers, trackers by Snapchat, Adobe, Bing, Pinterest, Qualtrics and Facebook.

The only legitimate tracker that deserves to be there is LivePerson, for customer service. Even that should only start when I have an actual customer support interaction rather than being aware of my page interactions all the time.

What data are these trackers collecting, and why are they required on a bank website?
