About Our Ads

We use common tracking technologies.

We collect personal information about users over time and across different Web sites when a you use this Web site or service. We also have third parties that collect personal information this way. We or our vendors use several common tracking tools to do this. These may include browser cookies. We may also use web beacons and similar technologies. We use these tools:

  • To recognize new or past customers.
  • To store your password if you are registered on our sites.
  • To improve our website.
  • To serve you with advertising content in which we think you will be interested. To do so, we may observe your behaviors on this website and other websites. We may also collect information about your browsing history.
  • To better understand the interests of our customers and our website visitors.

You can control tracking tools.

Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. To control flash cookies, which we may use on certain websites from time to time, you can go here. Why? Because flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings.

If you block cookies on your browser, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or delete cookies, not all of the tracking activities we have described here will stop. Choices you make are both browser and device-specific.

Our ads on other websites may be served based on tracking.

We may work with online advertising companies to show you relevant and useful ads. This may include ads served on our websites or apps. This may also include ads served on other companies' sites. These ads may be based on information collected by us or third parties (for example, when you register for a site). These ads may also be based on your activities on our websites or on third party sites. This second type of advertising is called "online behavioral advertising."

One of our partners is Yahoo!, an ad network partner which operates through the APT from the Yahoo! platform, that displays ads on our web sites and applications. To improve your ad experience, we may send information to third party advertising partners, such as Yahoo!, based on your activities, such as type of pages viewed and categories of interests, so that the advertising you see is relevant to you. Yahoo! also may use information regarding its own users to select which ads to display. To learn more about Yahoo!'s ad practices, including how to opt out of its use of anonymous information to select which ads to show you, see http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/opt_out/targeting/details.html.

You can opt-out of online behavioral advertising.

To opt out of online behavioral advertising, click here.Choices you make are both browser and device-specific. Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature. This feature lets you tell websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. These features are not yet uniform across browsers. Our sites are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
