Opt-Out of Third-Party Personalized Advertising
You may opt out of cross-site third party personalized advertising using several industry-provided frameworks that many advertisers and advertising networks, exchanges, platforms, and technology providers participate in:
|Framework||List of Participants||Direct Link to Opt-Out|
|Network Advertising Initiative (NAI)||https://www.networkadvertising.org/participating-networks/||NAI Opt-Out Link|
|Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA)||https://youradchoices.com/about||DAA Opt-Out Link|
|Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC)||https://youradchoices.ca/en/participating-companies||DAAC Opt-Out Link|
|Digitrust||https://www.digitru.st/participating-companies/||Digitrust Opt-Out Link|
Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioural information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
Adjust Your Browser Setting to Block Third Party Cookies
You can also use your web browser to directly block all cookies, or just third-party cookies, through your browser settings. Using your browser settings to block all cookies, including strictly necessary ones, may interfere with proper site operation. Guidance on how to control cookies in popular browsers is contained here:
To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser's instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt-out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser's saved cookies, you will need to opt-out again.
Set Do Not Track
Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. However, because there is not yet a defined response to do-not-track requests, our Site does not respond to your browser's do-not-track request. We cannot control third parties' responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties' use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.
Adjust Other Settings You can adjust the information that other third parties collect about you:
