Online Behavioural Advertising

The OWWA may work with third-party advertising companies who may use cookies and web beacons, to customize advertisements to you, as well as on other websites or mobile applications in their networks outside of our services. These customized advertisements may advertise third party products and services on websites or mobile applications not affiliated with us. Some of these ads are online behavioral advertising. These advertisements are more likely to be of interest to you and use non-personal behavioral information.  These ads may contain cookies that allow monitoring of websites and mobile applications (including our own services) and your response to such advertisements.  Cookies or web beacons placed by these companies do not collect personal information, and the third-party advertising companies do not have access to or use your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or other personal information; they may however, anonymously track your usage across this Site and other websites or mobile applications in their networks.
