Third Party Advertiser Cookies and Web Beacons
- A "cookie" is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a Web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies can be used to target advertisements relevant to your interests, based on your visits to different Web sites, to provide traffic measurement and other analytics and to conduct research. A "Web beacon" is an electronic file on a Web page that allows a Web site to count users who have visited that page, to access certain cookies and to provide auditing, research and reporting for advertisers.
- When your browser requests a page that displays advertising from one of the Advertisers, the Advertiser may view, edit or set its own cookie through your browser. In addition, the Advertiser may place its own Web beacon in the page, which may be triggered by your browser's request.
Advertiser Privacy Policies

You can learn more about NAI and how you may "opt out" of targeted advertising delivered by NAI member ad networks here.
From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice.

If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.
