Third Party Advertisements
We also use third party advertisements (such as Google Adsense) to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings.
Interest Based Advertisements
Beginning in April 2009, Google will begin tracking user activity via a cookie. This cookie will then determine what ads might be most appropriate for you, based on your interests. People who frequently visit sports sites, for example, will see sports-related ads. The logic is that you will be more interested in these ads than you might be in ads that are simply related to the content of the site you are visiting.
For more information, or to opt out, go to Google Privacy Center. There is a blue “opt out” button in the upper right corner.
If you opt out, you will continue to see ads, but they will be related to the content of the site – something that does not require a cookie.
