We may collect different types of information about your location (e.g., IP address, ZIP code) and may use that information to customize the Sites with location-based information, advertising, and features. For example, if your IP address indicates an origin in downtown Los Angeles, the Sites may be customized with downtown Los Angeles-specific information and advertisements.
Cookies and other electronic technologies.
We may sometimes target ads to you through ‘onboarded’ audiences: to do this, we may share information you have provided to us with advertising platforms on Google, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter who will de-identify the information and associate it with cookies that enable us to reach you with display media.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies by visiting the Help portion of your browser’s toolbar. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that advertisements you see may not be as relevant to you. Please note that limiting third-party cookies through your browser controls will not necessarily opt you out of first- or third-party interest-based advertising, as some technologies (including those we may use) may not respond to these browser controls.
To opt-out of interest-based advertising that is enabled by many industry platforms and providers (including much of the advertising described in this section), please see the choices we have described in Section 4.2, in particular the DAA’s opt-out page.
