We use interest-based advertising and share information about your or your device with third parties who help us engage in that advertising. The information we share may be combined with other information by those advertisers for their own purposes—we do not control how they use the information they receive from us in order to provide their advertising services. California law appears to deem this limited information sharing with advertising partners and use of their advertising services as a “sale” of personal information from which California residents have the right to opt-out.
