About Advertising

The Platforms use third parties such as network advertisers and ad exchanges to serve you ads on third-party platforms after you leave our Platforms, and we use third-party analytics and other service providers to evaluate and provide us and/or third parties with information about the use of the Platforms, viewing of ads and of our content and to evaluate the effectiveness of our direct marketing campaigns (which in turn may inform the type of advertising media content we send to you in the future).

Third-party ad serving enables us to target advertisements to you for products and services that you might be interested in.
