Targeting, Profiling or Advertising Cookies
We and our service providers may use targeting or advertising cookies to deliver ads that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests which are more targeted to your interests based on the content pages that you have visited on our websites and on our partners websites. These cookies also help us to understand your browser habits and visited websites so we can display ads that are targeted and specific to your interests. For example, we may use targeting or advertising cookies to limit the number of times you see the same ad on our Site and to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or to send you ads that are of specific interest to you based on your past browser habits. These cookies remember what you have looked at on the Site and we may share this information with other organisations, such as advertisers. These cookies will also enable us and third parties to serve ads to you when you visit other websites that may be of interest to you.
