Opting Out of Targeted Marketing Using Tru Optik Market Segments
On Privacy.tv you can opt-out of interest and behavior-based advertising for all Privacy.TV compliant apps and devices. Tru Optik and other companies identify households for purposes of delivering targeted advertising based on behavioral/interest-based categories and other information associated with such households. One of the elements (but not the only element) that makes up a household" is the IP address associated with that household. IP addresses are assigned by your Internet service provider to the router used to access the internet for connected devices in your home and/or business. When you choose to opt-out through privacy.tv we and the companies that use Tru Optik to power their opt-outs will exclude any "households" that are associated with the IP address(s) from which you have chosen to opt-out from targeted advertising. For this reason you should opt-out at each location where you wish to not receive targeted OTT advertising. In the event your IP address changes or you access an OTT service from a different location the opt-out will not be effective"
When you opt-out by clicking the button below, an opt-out cookie (from privacy.truoptik.com) will be stored in your web browser, and your IP address will also be stored by Tru Optik. Tru Optik and partners that use Tru Optik to power their opt-outs will know the choice you have made when they see your optout cookie, or, with respect to non-browser-enabled software clients, your IP address, and will apply your choice to all devices that they have associated with the opted out device. If you block or delete the opt-out cookie, Tru Optik will not see your choice.
If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt-out again. The opt-out only applies to the browser in which you set it. If you opt out, data may still be collected about your web browsing activities and you will still see advertising. If you wish to block or delete cookies altogether, you can use web browser settings to do so. We will store your opt-out choice with your IP address, but the choice will not be effective if your IP address changes or if you use an OTT service from another location.
