Interest-Based Advertising or IBA is why you see ads that are relevant to you. With this type of advertising, Undertone collects non-personally identifiable information and uses this information to try to predict what ads might be the most interesting to you. Undertone is committed to providing consumers notice and choice regarding IBA. Undertone offers an “opt-out cookie” for those that wish to opt-out of Undertone IBA activities. This cookie will honor your IBA preferences for a period of five (5) years. We may increase this period, which means your opt-out choice will continue for a longer period. If you have multiple Internet browsers or users on the same computer, you will need to perform the opt-out operation for each browser and/or user. If you or your anti-virus or other software deletes the opt-out cookies from your computer, if you re-install your browser, or if you delete your cookies (which can happen if you clear or delete your browser history), then you will need to repeat the process. Undertone may be unable to provide you with an opt-out cookie if your browser is set to block third-party cookies.
