THIRD-PARTY AD NETWORKS
Users in Canada may opt out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by active participants of the Canadian AdChoices program. AdChoices represents a company’s promise that you can control your ad targeting experience with them. Through the AdChoices self-regulatory program, you can opt-out of interest-based advertising. AdChoices offers you multiple tools to opt out of interest-based advertising from companies registered with their organization.
The opt-out process does not opt you out of receiving all ads, only interest-based ads. You will continue to get ads after you opt out; they will just not have any special relevance to your interests.
ONLINE BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING AND HOW YOU CAN OPT-OUT
We may work with third-party advertising companies who may utilize cookies and web beacons, and data collected on our services, to customize advertisements to you on our services, as well as on other websites or mobile applications in their networks beyond our services. Among other things, these customized advertisements may advertise our products and services and third party products and services on websites or mobile applications not affiliated with us. Some of these ads are online behavioral advertising – which serve advertisements that are more likely to be of interest to you using non-personal behavioral information. Such ads may contain cookies that allow monitoring of websites and mobile applications (including our own services) and your response to such advertisements. Cookies or web beacons placed by these companies do not collect personal information, and the third-party advertising companies do not have access to or use your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or other personal information; they may however, anonymously track your usage across our services and other websites or mobile applications in their networks. We limit companies that place our ads from using information for any purpose other than to assist us in our advertising efforts.
For more information about these third-party advertising companies’ privacy policies, visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s website at http://www.networkadvertising.org. If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising, you can opt-out of network advertising programs that use your information.
