We collect certain usage information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, Flash objects, web beacons, file information and other similar technology (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”), and we may use third-party digital businesses including social media platforms, analytics companies, data brokers, third-party advertisers, and other tech companies that offer digital advertising services (“Third-Party Digital Businesses”), to collect information using Tracking Technologies. Information collected using Tracking Technologies includes Personal Information described in the table above. We may share, or we may permit Third-Party Digital Businesses to collect Personal Information about your use of our Sites over time so that they may display ads that may be relevant to your interests on our Sites as well as on other websites or apps, or on other devices you may use. We or the Third-Party Digital Businesses use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests.
As noted above, depending on your browser or mobile device, you may be able set your browser to refuse all cookies or notify you of Tracking Technologies by actively managing the settings on your browser or mobile device (as described below). If you delete your cookies or if you set your browser or device to decline these technologies, some services may not function properly. Our services do not currently change the way they operate upon detection of a Do Not Track or similar signal, but see “Opt-Out Preference Signals,” in the U.S. State Privacy Notice.
Clear gifs help us better manage what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our users' Personal Information.
Tracking Technologies – Your Additional Choices
Browser Settings: In addition, you can exercise control over browser-based cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser, and mobile devices may offer ad and data limitation choices. Please note that when you use cookie control tools, you will have to change your settings for each browser and device you use, and your limitation on cookies can limit the functionality of online services you use, including our services. Use the help function on your browser or click on the applicable links below to learn more:
In addition, third party tools may enable you to search for and opt-out of some of these trackers, such as the Ghostery browser plug-in available here.
Mobile Device Settings: You can use mobile device settings to limit mobile tracking technologies and associated activities. For instance, you can adjust or reset the advertising identifiers on your mobile device in the device settings of iOS and Android devices. iOS users can visit Settings > Privacy > Advertising > Reset Advertising Identifier. Android users can visit Google settings > Ads > Reset advertising ID. These controls work much like deleting cookies in a browser—the device is harder to associate with past activity, but tracking may still occur using the new advertising identifier.
Ad Industry Tool: Some third parties that may collect Personal Information in association with your use of our online services for advertising, analytics and other purposes, and may sell that Personal Information downstream, provide you the opportunity to opt-out of their sales. Please visit https://www.privacyrights.info/ to opt-out of the sale of Personal Information by participating third parties. You must opt out on every device and browser you use in order to effectuate your “Do Not Sell” requests from these parties. However, opting out does not mean you will stop seeing ads and you may continue to still see interest-based ads. To learn more about interest-based advertising and additional opt-out choices related to it, please visit these websites (here and here).
Clearing cookies or changing settings may affect your choices described above and you may have to opt-out separately via each browser and other device you use. Cookie-enabled opt-outs signals may no longer be effective if you delete, block or clear cookies. We do not represent and are not responsible for the completeness, accuracy or effectiveness of any third-party notices, tools, or choices.
