Track" feature that signals to websites and Services that you visit that
you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Each browser communicates
"Do Not Track" signals to websites differently, making it unworkable
to honor each and every request correctly. In order to alleviate any
communication error between browsers and our Services, our Services do not
support "Do Not Track" signals or requests at this time. As the
technology and communication between browser and website improves, we may elect
in our discretion to reevaluate the ability to honor "Do Not Track"
signals and may make changes to our policy. You may adjust your browser or
operating system settings to limit this tracking or to decline cookies, but by
doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on the Services or take
full advantage of all of our offerings. Check the “Help” menu of your browser
or operating system to learn how to adjust your tracking settings or cookie

(d) Analytics cookies, which are used to
compile aggregate and statistical data about site traffic and site interaction

General Disclosure Policy.
We may share your Personal Information with certain third-parties to provide products and services that you have requested,
when we have your consent, or as otherwise described in this Policy.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to disclose Usage Data
without restriction. We reserve the right to disclose or use Personal
Information as described below.
We may de-identify your Personal Information so that you are not
identified as an individual, and we may share such aggregated, non-personally
identifiable information, publicly or with our partners like publishers,
advertisers, or connected websites (e.g., sharing information
publicly to show trends about the general use of our Site or other Services).
User Profiles and Submissions. Certain user profile information (e.g., your name,
location, and any text, image, or video content that you have uploaded to the
Services) may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction or to
address your request for our Services. Your account privacy settings may allow
you to limit the other users who can see Personal Information in your user
profile and/or what information in your user profile is visible to others.
Please remember that any content you upload to your public user profile, along
with any other Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose
online in a manner in which other users can view (e.g., on discussion
boards, in messages or chat areas) becomes publicly available, and it may be
indexable by search engines, or copied, forwarded, saved, or archived by anyone.
Your username may also be displayed to other users if you send messages or
comments, upload text or images, or share features publicly (e.g., a
public watchlist) through the Services, and other users may be able to contact
you through messages or comments.
(a) Your Personal
Information may be used for the presentation of advertisements. We may use ad
networks to customize and display advertising on our Services. We may share
certain information about you as a user (e.g., age, zip code, or

service providers to help them deliver more relevant content and advertisements
through their networks. We may work with other companies for certain services,
such as analytics or advertising, and you may be subject to their privacy
policies as well, though you may be able to opt-out through them directly.

targeted advertising and advertising networks, or about your ability to opt-out
of collection of information by certain third-parties,

beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research,
and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks
to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because
your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad
network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies,
just as if you had requested a web page from their site. You may be able to
opt-out of web beacon tracking conducted by third-parties
through our Services by adjusting the Do Not Track settings on your browser;
please note that we don’t control whether or how these third-parties comply with Do Not Track requests.
(d) Our offerings may
include features or functionalities provided by third-parties, or
may integrate or interact with third-party products and services (including via
APIs, plug-ins, links, frames, embedding, or other interactions). In the
process of providing such functionalities within our Services, your browser or
other tools or technology may send certain information to those third-party providers. The use of these
third-party-provided features or functionalities may be subject to those third parties’ own privacy policies. For example, we may use a third-party for ad serving, retargeting, remarketing, and/or for
analytics, in which case such third-party may
have access to your data, subject to its policies. These third-party
vendors may use their own cookies and/or other third-party cookies together to
(i) inform, optimize, and serve ads across the web based on your past visits to
our Services and others; and (ii) report to us how your ad impressions, other
uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services
are related to visits to our site. If and to the extent from time to time we
use Double Click or another Google brand for ad serving,
analytics, remarketing, retargeting, etc., you can set certain preferences
