Advertising Networks. We may use a variety of third-party advertising networks, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers, and other third parties to, for example, facilitate targeting of advertisements and measure and analyze advertising effectiveness and traffic on our Sites. Some of these third-party service providers participate in the Network Advertising Initiative's Opt-Out Tool (//www.networkadvertising.org/choices/) and the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavior Advertising (//www.aboutads.info/choices/). You can learn more about these tools by clicking on the referenced links. Please note the following concerning opting out:
• The opt-out tools discussed above are "cookie based." Opt-out tools rely on cookies to remember your choices concerning the use of your information by the parties that offer you those choices. If you delete tracking technologies using the controls in your Web browser after opting out, you may have to opt-out again to re-establish your opt-out preferences.
• Opt-outs are "browser-specific." The opt-out preferences you choose will apply only to the Web browser that you used when you selected those preferences. For example, if you opt-out while using Internet Explorer this choice will not affect the use of information collected by tracking technologies when you use Mozilla Firefox on the same device. It also means that opting-out on one device will not affect the use of information by tracking technologies on other devices that you may use to access our Site.
