How to turn off third-party advertising cookies
Some of the advertisements you see on a website are added by other organizations anonymously to track who has viewed their ad.
The Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), a leading self-regulatory association dedicated to responsible data collection and its use for digital advertising, lets you opt out of third-party advertisements.
