California Consumer Privacy Act Opt-Out Choices
Like many companies online, we use services provided by Google, Facebook and others that help deliver interest-based ads to you. California law may classify our use of these services as a “sale” of your Personal Information (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act) to the companies that provide the services because we let them collect information from our users (e.g., device data and online activity data) to help them serve interest-based ads online. Your choices for limiting collection and/or use of your Personal Information by these companies include:
Blocking cookies in your browser. Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, our sites may not work properly. For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
Blocking advertising ID use in your mobile settings. Your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit your use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for interest-based advertising purposes.
Using privacy plug-ins or browsers. You can block cookies used for interest-based ads by using a browser with privacy features, like Brave, or installing browser plugins, like Privacy Badger, Ghostery or uBlock Origin, and configuring them to block third party cookies and other trackers.
Platform opt-outs. The following advertising partners offer opt-out features that let you opt out of their use of your information for interest-based advertising:
- Google: https://adssettings.google.com
- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/ads
- AppNexus: https://www.appnexus.com/platform-privacy-policy#choices
- Twitter: https://help.twitter.com/en/safety-and-security/privacy-controls-for-tailored-ads
- Pinterest: https://policy.pinterest.com/en/privacy-policy#section-choices-you-have-about-your-info
Note that because these opt-out mechanisms are specific to the device or browser on which they are exercised, you will need to opt-out on every browser and device that you use.
