This means that you may see advertising on our Sites tailored to how you browse or your other internet activities, or you may see advertising for NAUTILUS and its projects on other websites based on your browsing behavior across websites. Some websites where may advertise belong to ad networks that use your web browsing history to choose which ads to display on their network websites; these ads include advertising for NAUTILUS and its Sites, but no Personal Information about you is shared with those third party ad networks. Other websites where you see our ads may use interest preferences that you have chosen on those sites, as well as registration and other information about you, to choose which ads to display to you. Some internet browsers, websites such as Facebook, and mobile devices offer opt-outs for interest-based advertising. Please refer to the website that you are visiting, your browser and/or your device settings for additional information.

 

You can opt-out of receiving interest-based ads from third parties who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/) and DAA website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices/).
