Sometimes ads might appear on the Site that are delivered to you based on OBA methods. (Please see the definition of “OBA” below.) If such ads are displayed to you, the purpose typically is to deliver ads to you that are expected to be of greater relevanceto you (because they tend to relate to topics of interest to you as indicated by such collected data), and thus more helpful to you while potentially being more effective for advertisers as well. Such ad-delivery and data-collection normally is performedby third parties not affiliated with us. However, if you prefer not to receive ads delivered to you on this Site based on OBA, then you can > click and you willbe presented with a Web site offering the opportunity to eliminate or reduce the receipt of ads on this Site delivered to you based on OBA, or information on how you may do so.

Note that when we refer here to “you” or “your” in connection with OBA, this oftentimes means a computer, IP address (Internet protocoladdress) or other device that presumably you use, or is associated with you, in connection with use of the World Wide Web. Accordingly, by “Online Behavioral Advertising ” (or, “OBA “), we mean the collection of dataonline from a particular computer or device regarding Web viewing behaviors over time and across non-affiliate Web site (meaning, Web site other than this Site or other of the Site) and for the purpose of using such data to predict user preferencesor interests to deliver advertising to that computer or device based on the preferences or interests inferred from such Web viewing behaviors. Certain things that are not included as OBA (some of which have been addressed elsewhere in this PrivacyPolicy) are: collection on one or more of the Site of viewing behavior on such Site(s) solely for use on or in connection with one or more of the Site (including the delivery of ads on the Site); the logging or reporting of ad performance or otherad metrics such as page views or the number and type of advertisements delivered (such reporting may include, for example, reporting by us to one of our service providers or customers, or vice versa); the activity itself of causing ads or advertising-relatedservices to be delivered (apart from whether OBA is involved); and Contextual Advertising. By “Contextual Advertising “, we mean the delivery of advertisements based on (i) the content of one or more of a Site’s Web pages, (ii) a searchquery on one of the Site or (iii) a user’s behavior on one or more of the Site during the same online session during which the ad is delivered.
