We use “online behavioral advertising” (advertising directed to you generated, at least in part, on your Internet browsing activity across the World Wide Web). We do not share Personal Information with the third parties conducting advertising programs on our behalf, however, these third parties and their affiliates do collect certain information from their "tags" being incorporated on the Website. The information they collect from you includes the name (URL) of the web pages viewed whilst on the Website, IP address, time of visit, type of browser, information about your device, and randomly-assigned identifiers stored in Cookies, which are used by them to target and serve advertising.
Some third parties engaged in these advertising programs may maintain their own proprietary consumer databases allowing them to track or identify website visitors themselves. Other third parties have proprietary technologies which determine what additional devices you may use, this may enable them to show relevant advertisements on them.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. When a user turns DNT on, the browser may send a signal or other message to web services requesting that they “do not track” the user. We do not currently change our practices in response to DNT browser settings. For further information about DNT, visit www.allaboutdnt.org. The DNT initiative has not agreed on the actions that should be taken by the websites that receive the “do not track” signal, and therefore DNT is not yet standardized
You can make decisions about your privacy and the adverts you receive. You can control whether companies serve you on-line behavioral advertising by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance website and using its opt-out: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. The DAA opt-out does require cookies to be enabled in your browser.
