Interest Based Advertising Policy
Our website which links to this Interest-Based Advertising Policy allows third parties to collect certain information about you during your visit to the website for analytics purposes, which helps us operate, maintain, refine and personalize the website. This website also permits third parties to collect certain information about you to provide interest-based advertising to you.
With the help of third party advertisers or ad networks, at times we display ads on the websites of unaffiliated third parties. When you view ads that we serve elsewhere online, you may see different kinds of ads, such as text ads next to search results or video ads on web pages. Sometimes, these ads are based on the content of the pages on which they appear (i.e., contextual advertising). Other times, these ads are generated by matching the particular ad to your interests as inferred from your online activities that have been collected over time. With interest-based advertising, the goal is to show you ads that are most relevant to you.
To do this, we rely on third parties to use technologies such as cookies and web beacons to collect information about your interaction with our websites and other third party websites. This type of information generally does not identify you personally and, typically, it is aggregated with other data to create segments – groups of users and certain general interest categories that we have inferred based on a variety of factors. We and our third party advertising partners use this information to paint a more accurate picture of the interests of the audiences with which we interact – including you – so that our ads are more relevant to those interests.
