Your Choices About Data Sharing

 

Online Behavioral Advertising: We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated websites and mobile applications. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your visits to our website, mobile applications, and other non-affiliated websites or mobile applications over time. Advertising Providers may also use this information to associate different browsers and devices with you, and deliver more relevant ads across those browsers and devices. This practice is sometimes called online behavioral advertising.

 

Forgotcha adheres to the DAA Principles. You may visit www.aboutads.info/choices to learn more about this type of advertising, and to opt-out of this form of advertising on your web browser on this device by companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) self-regulatory program. Additionally, if you wish to opt-out of interest based advertising in mobile applications on this device, you can download the DAA’s AppChoices app from your device’s application store, or visit www.youradchoices.com/appchoices. Some of these companies may use information they collect to associate various devices you use with each other to deliver relevant advertising across those devices.

 

Note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications, but may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests, and the companies you select may still collect information for other purposes, such as research, analytics, and internal operations. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or erase cookies from your browser, or use a different mobile device, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.
