Many people make the mistake of assuming that by choosing to opt-out of behavioral advertising using the page provided on this website, means that you will no longer receive advertising when you are using the internet.
However, this is not the case. The reality is that the advertising you see displayed on the websites that you visit will not be customized to you and your interests and may be less relevant to you but it will still appear.
Let’s explore what else you need to know about opting out;
By choosing to opt-out of a particular organization engaged in online behavioral advertising, it will only apply to that particular business’ use of data from the web browser you are using. Likewise, if you choose to opt out of all online behavioral advertising by the organizations listed, it will only apply to the web browser you are using.
Please note that if there are separate user accounts on a computer within a household you are able to tailor your preferences to each account.
You will need to repeat this for every different web browser you use on the same and/or different computers or Internet-enabled devices. Simply follow the same process as before to quickly get everything up to speed and how you want it.
