We may also use these technologies to monitor traffic, improve the websites, and make it easier to use and more relevant.
We partner with third party advertising companies who also use these tracking tools to provide advertisements on our websites or other websites. These third parties may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the websites. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may also use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond the websites. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. While we do not knowingly provide these entities with information that personally identifies you such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us. To learn more about the third-party collection and use of your information, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance.
Some content or applications, including advertisements, on the websites may be served by unaffiliated third parties.
