Cookies and Web Beacons
store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site.
This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability
to login to some of our features, such as forums.
We also use third party
advertisements on lifeanddating.com to support our site. Some of these
advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they
advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google
through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your
ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you
have Flash installed. This is generally used for geo targeting purposes
(showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or
showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking
ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad
serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer
when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising
(including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve
ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads
served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example,
if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas
hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about
hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track
personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical
address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers, or
credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this
advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or
selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser
settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet
Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site
as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to
services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you
are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings
that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the
advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
