Targeted Advertising. Many companies that collect information for targeted advertising are members of either the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). The NAI and the DAA offer the ability for you to opt-out of the targeted advertising programs of their members. The NAI op-out is available at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp and the DAA opt-out is available at http://www.aboutads.info/choices. Please note that if you use a different computer, change your web browser, or delete your cookies, you will need to renew all of your opt-out choices. Please also note that this does not opt you out of being served advertising but only excludes you from targeted (i.e. interest-based) advertising. If you use the Site, you will continue to receive generic advertisements.
California and Delaware “Do Not Track” Disclosures
California and Delaware law require IWF to indicate whether it honors “Do Not Track” settings in your browser concerning targeted advertising. At this time, there is no worldwide uniform or consistent industry standard or definition for responding to, processing, or communicating Do Not Track signals. Thus, like many other websites and online services, we are currently unable to respond to Do Not Track Signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track”, you may wish to visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
