Here's how to get rid of them IF YOU ARE USING CHROME:

First, click the MENU button in chrome (which is the 3 vertical dots in the top-right), then click SETTINGS

 

Then, scroll all the way to the bottom, and click ADVANCED. (Yep, you are an "advanced" user now - give yourself a pat on the back!)

 

Then, scroll down some more and click SITE SETTINGS

 

Then, scroll down some more and click NOTIFICATIONS

 

Now you will see a list of websites that you (or somebody that was using your computer) has agreed to allow this nonsense from. Click the 3 vertical dots to the right of it, and click BLOCK.

At this point, you might be wondering how these sites got in this list. Here's what it looks like when a site is asking you for this permission:

Keep your eyes peeled for this in the future!
