How do our advertising and marketing partners use cookies for interest-based advertising?

We may use third parties such as advertising networks and other content providers to serve targeted ads on our Site and on other websites like social media sites. This practice is referred to as interest-based advertising. These advertising networks and/or content providers may use cookies and similar tracking technologies to uniquely distinguish you, your web browser, or your device and report certain information about your visits to our Site and other websites (e.g., web pages you visit and your response to ads) in order to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and to deliver ads that are more relevant to you, both on and off the Site and across your devices, including on social media sites. This information may also be used to evaluate our online advertising campaigns.

Some of these companies may combine information they collect from our Site with other information they have collected relating to your web browser’s activities across their network of websites, where permitted. Please see examples of the opt-outs offered by our advertising partners below.

How can You opt out from interest-based advertising?

Some advertising networks we may use for these purposes may be members of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (“DAAC”) or the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). Please visit the websites below to learn more about interest-based advertising and to opt out of receiving personalized advertising or content from participating third-party advertising companies:

Please note that if you opt out, you may still receive online advertising from us, but it will not be tailored to your interests based on online behavioral information about you. To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use, so you must opt out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt out again.
