Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We work with third-party companies that use tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our Online Platforms in order to provide certain tailored advertisements on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on Online Platforms and your interaction with our advertising and other communications and use this information to determine which ads you see on third-party websites and applications. These technologies and the information collected about you may also be used to track your activity across multiple devices. For more information about this practice and to understand your options including how to opt out of receiving these tailored advertisements, please visit http://www.aboutads.info. You should be aware that even if you opt-out, these tracking technologies may still collect data and you will still see ads, but they will not be targeted based upon the information collected through these tracking technologies.

Additionally, we strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:

• Tracking Technologies and Advertising. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, changing your browser settings will typically not affect Flash cookies. To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s website. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our Online Platforms site may then be inaccessible or not function properly.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
