We may display interest-based advertising using information an individual makes available to us when they interact with our websites, content, or Services. Interest-based ads, which may sometimes be referred to as personalised or targeted ads, are displayed based on information from activities that the individual undertakes on our websites, such as transactions, use of devices, apps or software, visiting sites that contain our content or ads or interacting with our tools.
Cookies enable us to learn about the ads that are viewed, which ads are clicked n, and other actions the individual may take on our websites and as well as other sites. This allows us to provide more useful and relevant ads. For example, if we know what ads an individual has already been shown then we can try to avoid showing them the same ones repeatedly. Any interest based ads that we show on our websites or any other website are based on information from an individual’s interaction and will not be associated with the individual’s identity.
For further information on how we use any personal information which is collected by our cookies, please see our Privacy Notice.
