About Our Ads

We use common tracking technologies.

We collect personal information about users over time and across different Web sites when you use this Web site or service. We also have third parties that collect personal information this way. To do this, we use several common tracking tools. Our vendors may also use these tools. 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 site.
  • 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.

Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked.  These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.

If you block or delete cookies, not all of the tracking that we have described in this policy will stop.

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.” To learn more about this type of advertising, click here.

You can opt-out of online behavioral advertising.
