We follow the Neustar Privacy Principles, including the principle of Privacy by Design, to design, build, and deliver products and services that respect your privacy.
We collect Personal Information from you directly and from businesses that use our products and services. We use registration data, including Personal Information, supplied by our online Match Partners to set AdAdvisor Cookies and/or Aggregate Knowledge Cookies, which do not contain or convey Personal Information. Finally, we collect and use Personal Information and other demographic data from a variety of sources such as telephone directories, the US Postal Service, the Census Bureau, and from other third parties. We do not use Sensitive Personal Information without your permission.
Please note that opting out does not mean you will block online advertising altogether or see fewer ads. It simply means that the ads that you see will not be personalized for you. Ads may be served because they relate to the website you are visiting or to your current search, or they may just be randomly placed.
Your choice to opt out from the use of AK and AdAdvisor cookies will not affect ads placed by any other organization.
We comply with opt-out requests by placing an “opt-out cookie” on your computer or device. Consequently, if you clear your cookies on that computer or device, we will not be able to read our “opt-out cookie” and will resume collecting information from that computer or device for purposes of retargeting. Similarly, an opt-out request will not be effective on other browsers, computers, or devices you may use if you have not opted out while using that browser, computer, or device.
