We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Website and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as Interest-Based Advertising (“IBA”). We adhere to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this activity.
We use data collected from non-affiliated websites over time as well as other data described in this Policy to provide advertising on behalf of our clients that is relevant to interests inferred from this data. We may also partner with other ad companies to extend our audiences across different browsers for interest-based advertising purposes.

When you make your choices on your browser using these choice tools, we will stop collecting and using data from that browser and associated browsers for interest-based advertising on it. We will also stop using data collected from that browser on other browsers associated with it, and will stop using data collected from those associated browsers for interest-based advertising on the opted-out browser. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or erase cookies from your browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.
You may visit the DAA WebChoices tool at www.aboutads.info to learn more about IBA and how to opt out of this advertising on websites by companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program.
