Additional Information about Internet Practices

When you visit our websites, we collect Website Information for various reasons. For example, we may use Website Information to serve ads to you across multiple devices, such as your computer, smartphone, or tablet, or to limit the number of times you see our ads. We may also use Website Information to customize your experience with and analyze your use of our websites and interaction with our ads.

Some of these Ad Companies may be able to associate Website Information with other information they already have about you.

Some of these sites, apps, and platforms may use cookies, web beacons and other technology to capture and transmit information about you or your device to us or our service providers. These service providers may use information about your visits to and interactions with this and other websites, mobile apps and platforms, or the ads themselves, together with information about you, your purchases or interests (which may include Website Information), to provide ads about goods and services that may be of interest to you ("Interest Based Advertising"). Some of this information may be exchanged with us or other service providers for market research or to analyze and manage our advertising and marketing efforts.
