This website hosts advertising from a wide range of credible advertisers. This included interest-based advertising that enables advertisers to reach users based on their interests (e.g. 'sports enthusiasts'), and allows them to show ads based on a user's previous interactions with them, such as visits to advertiser websites.


We and our advertisers may use personal information to provide the services you’ve requested, including services that display customized content and advertising.

We and our advertisers may also use personal information for auditing, research and analysis to operate and improve technologies and services.

We and our advertisers may share aggregated non-personal information with third parties.

When we and our advertisers use third parties to assist us in processing your personal information, we require that they comply with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
