Internet Advertising

Some sites display interest-based advertising using information you make available to them when you interact with their site, content, or services. Some online ad networks, use cookies, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies (collectively, "cookies"). Cookies enable sites to learn about what ads you see, what ads you click, and other actions you take on their sites and other sites. This allows them to provide you with more useful and relevant ads. For example, if web sites know what ads you are shown they can be careful not to show you the same ones repeatedly.

We do not associate your interaction with unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based ads. We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display our interest-based ads. However, advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalised ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, users in the north west who bought or browsed for classical music). Also, some third-parties may provide us information about you (such as demographic information or sites where you have been shown ads) from offline and online sources that we may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising.

Advertisers or ad companies working on their behalf sometimes use technology to serve the ads that appear on our sites directly to your browser. They may also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalise ad content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third party sites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third party websites are not covered by our Privacy Notice or our Cookies & Internet Advertising policies. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.
