YOUR TARGETED ADVERTISING AND OPT-OUT CHOICES
Note: These opt-out options are limited to the device and web browser you use to opt-out. If you use another device or browser, or if you change devices or browsers, you will need to opt-out on each device and browser. If you block or clear cookies from your browser, it may remove the opt out setting, requiring you to opt-out again.
Using the resources below does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Site, Services, or on other websites. You may continue to receive ads, for example, based on the particular Site that you are viewing (i.e., context-based ads).
California Residents – Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information
The CCPA defines "selling" and "sharing" broadly to include not only traditional selling of data for monetary consideration, but also data sharing arrangements where the recipient can use the personal information that they receive for the recipient’s own business purposes. While we do not “sell” your Personal Information for monetary consideration, we do disclose certain categories of Personal Information in order to receive certain benefits or services, such as when we make browsing information available to third party ad companies in order to reach users with more relevant ads and content. This can constitute "selling" or "sharing" under the CCPA.
If you are a California resident and wish to opt-out of the “sale” or “sharing” of your Personal Information, please use the opt-out resources below. You can also click here for a tool that lets you tell our Sites to opt you out of “sales” or “sharing” of Personal Information for purposes of targeted advertising that occurs via cookies or similar technologies.
Other States – Opt-Out of Targeted Advertising
If you are a resident of certain states, such as Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, or Virginia, you can use the choices listed above for California residents to exercise your right to opt-out of targeted advertising. Doing so will also opt-out of “sales” of personal information, as defined under the laws of these states, that may result from sharing of data for purposes of targeted advertising.
Other Opt-Out Resources
In addition to the above options, we provide the following resources for users to opt-out of targeted advertising.
