Opting Out Of Interest Based Advertising and PII Merger; Refusing To Accept Cookies
Opting Out of Receiving Interest Based Advertising and PII Merger
You can elect to opt out of Interest Based Advertising from many third party advertisers directly on their websites or through the opt out made available by Digital Advertising Alliance, either by going directly to their websites or by clicking on the Digital Advertising Alliance?s blue triangular icon at the bottom right corner of our website or ads (look for CDK Global, our current website and digital advertising provider). This industry alliance makes opting out of receiving Interest Based Advertising easier by providing a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.
When you opt out of receiving Interest Based Advertisements, a cookie is placed on your computer that informs applicable advertisers that you do not wish to receive Interest Based Advertisements. The cookie is specific to the web browser you were using when you elected to opt out. If you access the Internet through a different browser, or clear your browser's cookies, advertisers will not know that you do not wish to receive Interest Based Advertisements. In either case, you must repeat the opt-out process to reset your preferences.
Opting out of receiving Interest Based Advertisements does not mean that we or any third party advertisers will no longer collect information; however, so long as the opt out cookie is on your browser, it does mean that the third party advertisers from whom you have opted out of receiving Interest Based Advertisements will not display advertisements to you which are tailored to your apparent interests using information collected through cookies and other tracking tools facilitated by our website or the applicable third party advertiser.

If you elect to modify your browser settings so that your browser does not accept cookies, you will need to repeat this process if you access the Internet through another browser.
