Interest-based advertising

We and service providers on our behalf use cookies and similar technologies on our websites to deliver advertisements personalized to your interests on other websites through what is sometimes called “interest-based advertising.” If you would prefer not to receive personalized ads based on your browser or device usage, you have the ability to control certain interest-based advertising practices and opt out of receiving tailored advertisements. Please note that you will continue to see advertisements, but they will no longer be tailored to your interests.

We comply with the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising as administered by the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). You can learn more about interest-based advertising and opting out of targeted advertising from certain providers by visiting the DAA’s consumer choice page. The opt-out process through the DAA relies upon the placement of an opt-out cookie on your device.

For interest-based advertisements delivered through mobile apps, you can install the DAA’s AppChoices app on your device to opt-out of targeted advertising by certain providers and can also select a system level advertising preference feature on your device (such as “Limit Ad Tracking” on Apple devices or “Opt out of Interest-based ads” on Android devices).
