To create a more customized online experience for you, some of the ads you may receive through our Services and other platforms may be tailored to your interests and online behaviors.
We engage other companies to assist us in collecting and using information related to you for interest-based advertising purposes (“Providers”). Where we describe our collection and use practices in this Interest-Based Ads Policy, our Providers may be engaged in the same or similar collection and use practices on our behalf.
We use common tracking technologies.
We collect certain Personal Information over time and across different websites, apps, devices and interactions when you use our Services.

We may engage in interest-based advertising.
Interest-based advertising or “online behavioral advertising” includes ads served to you after you leave a website, encouraging you to return. We may display interest-based advertising using information gathered about you over time across multiple websites, devices, or other platforms.
These ads may be served after you leave our Site or after you leave the websites of third parties. They also include ads we think are relevant based on your online or in-App browsing habits. These ads might be served on other websites. Interest-based ads may enhance your experience because they are more tailored to your particular interests and can help provide you with the most relevant information that aligns to your interests.
How we gather relevant information about you for interest-based advertising.
You can control certain tracking tools.
Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies.
Our Do Not Track Policy: Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
Certain options you select are browser and device specific.
You can opt-out of interest-based advertising.
Some of our Providers participate in self-regulatory programs for interest-based advertising through the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). Each of these programs provides an opt-out feature where you can choose not to receive targeted advertising from any NAI member or DAA participant.

The Digital Advertising Alliance also offers a tool for opting out of the collection of cross-app data on a mobile device for interest-based advertising.

You may download the AppChoices app HERE for iOS devices and HERE for Android devices.
Click HERE to visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s informational page on opting out on mobile devices, which includes advertising choice mechanisms provided by certain mobile device manufacturers.
You can stop all further collection of information by or via our App by uninstalling our App. You may use the standard uninstall process available as part of your mobile device or through the mobile application marketplace or network. If you uninstall our App from your mobile device, a unique identifier we used that was associated with your device may continue to be stored. If you re-install our App on the same mobile device, we may be able to re-associate this unique identifier to your prior transactions and activities.
Certain choices you make are both browser and device-specific.
