Behavioral Targeting

We sometimes partner with third party ad networks to manage our advertising on other sites. An ad network partner uses cookies and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other web sites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interest (interest-based ads). If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by following the directions below. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

To opt-out of interest-based ads on Google and Facebook, go to the Digital Advertising Alliance in the USA, Digital Advertising Allianace of Canada in Canada or the European Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe and select "Facebook Inc." and "Google Inc" from the list.

Our sites and apps also participate in the Adobe Marketing Cloud Device Co-op to better understand how you use our website and apps across the various devices you use, and to deliver tailored promotions. Learn more about how Adobe does this and how you can opt-out of this if you so wish.
