This site may use Google Analytics tools and advertising features. Google Analytics Advertising Features allow features in Analytics that aren’t available through standard implementations.
Advertising features include:
- Remarketing with Google Analytics
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting
- Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
- Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers
The Advertising Features enable Google Analytics to collect data about website traffic via Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation. The data is sent to Google Analytics (for example, via the Google Analytics tracking code, Google Analytics SDK, or the Measurement Protocol) for analysis and reporting. Your use of the Sites will not facilitate the merging of personally identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless you have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger. For information about Google’s advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, please visit the following resources: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/types/ and https://www.google.com/policies/privacy /key-terms/#toc-terms-identifier.
Visitors can opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features used on this website, including through Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI’s consumer opt-out) by using Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
