To Opt-out of Online Behavioral Advertising
We are committed to transparency and choice. A person can opt-out of all behavioral advertising by using the Network
Advertising Initiative opt-out tools. The NAI opt-out tool reports which member companies have placed a cookie that can
be used for Interest-Based Advertising on your browser by checking for the presence of such cookies and reporting back whether
it found any "active" cookies. The NAI opt-out tool also allows you to set cookies that will tell NAI members you do
not want to participate in Interest-Based Advertising. The tool does not delete individual cookies nor does it necessarily replace
other cookies delivered by NAI companies, such as those that are used for ad reporting or ad serving purposes that, for example, allow
advertisers to change the sequence of ads, as well as to track the number of ads delivered. For more information, or to access the tool,
please go to http://networkadvertising.org/consumer/opt_out.asp
