Interest-based advertising is advertising that is targeted to you based on your web browsing and usage of certain apps over time and across websites or apps. You have the option to restrict the use of information for interest-based advertising and to opt-out of receiving interest-based ads. Depending on from where you access the Services, you may also be asked to consent to our use of cookies, including advertising cookies.

The opt-outs for interest-based advertising require that strictly necessary cookies are not blocked by the settings in your web browser. We support the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising of the Digital Advertising Alliance. If you live in the United States, you can visit Ad Choices (US) to find a convenient place to opt-out of interest-based advertising with participating entities for each region. These websites also provide detailed information about how interest-based advertising works. Opting out does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising when you use the Internet. It just means that the data collected from our Website will not be used for interest-based advertising and that the advertising you see displayed on websites will not be customized to your interests.

Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative that has developed a “flag” or signal that an Internet user may activate in the user’s browser software to notify websites that the user does not wish to be “tracked” by third-parties as defined by the initiative. Please note that the Services do not alter their behavior or use practices when we receive a “Do-Not-Track” signal from browser software.

7. USE OF COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

A “cookie” is a small text file that a web server stores in browser software. A browser sends cookies to a server when the browser makes a connection to the server (for example, when requesting a web page from the same domain that created the cookie). The purpose of cookies is to remember the browser over time and distinguish one browser instance (or user) from all others. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to track personal information previously entered by a web user on the Website. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. Cookies can remember login information, preferences, and similar information.

Cookies, as well as other tracking technologies, such as HTML5 local storage, and Local Shared Objects (such as “Flash” cookies), and similar mechanisms, may record information such as a unique identifier, information you enter in a form, IP address, and other categories of data.

If you want to block the use and saving of cookies from the Website on to the computer’s hard drive, you should take the necessary steps within your web browser’s settings to block all cookies from the Services and external serving vendors, or use the cookie control system. Please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, certain parts of our Services may not function correctly. For information on how to disable cookies, refer to your browser’s documentation.
