- Functionality cookies: These cookies allow the site to remember options that you make (such as the user name or ID, the language preference, or the region or region you're in) and provide better and more personalized features.

The information collected about your device enables us to group you with other devices that have shown similar interests. We can then display advertising to categories of users that is based on common interests.
Advertising on mobile devices
Mobile devices have identifiers that provide the ability to deliver targeted ads to specific mobile devices. In many cases, you can disable ad tracking on your mobile device or reset your ad identifier at any time in the privacy settings of your mobile device. You can also disable location tracking on your mobile device. If you disable ad tracking or location tracking, data collected from your device's ad ID for advertising purposes will no longer be available. You may still see the same number of ads, but they are not based on your interests, so they may be less relevant.
