Through the use of a cookie, We also may automatically collect information about Your online activity on our site, such as the web pages You visit, the links You click, and the searches You conduct on our site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but You can usually modify Your browser setting to decline cookies. If You choose to decline cookies, please note that You may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on the Site.
Other Technologies. We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track Your use of our site. We also may include web beacons in promotional or other e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information We obtain in this manner enables us to customize the services We offer the Site visitors to deliver targeted advertisements and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities.
Information collected by third parties. We may allow third parties, including, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements on our site. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies or web beacons, to collect information about Users who view or interact with their advertisements. This information allows them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness. You may choose whether to receive some Interest-based Advertising by submitting opt-outs. Some of the advertisers that perform advertising-related services for us and third parties may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how You can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, including use of Cross-device Data for serving ads, Visit: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoicesfor information on the DAA’s opt-out program specifically for mobile apps (including use of precise location for third party ads). Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the NAI and Your opt-out options for their members, see: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if You are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Advertising, You may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain Interest-based Advertising to You but does not mean You will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Also, if Your browsers are configured to reject cookies when You visit these opt-out webpages, or You subsequently erase Your cookies, use a different device or web browser or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), Your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective.
