Information for Nevada Consumers
Nevada law requires website operators to provide a way for Nevada consumers to opt out of the sale of certain information that the website operator may collect about them. This information is limited to direct identifiers (such as your name, postal address and email address) collected by a website operator through an Internet website or online service and maintained by the operator in an accessible form. When Nevada consumers opt out of the sale of their covered information, website operators must ensure that information is not sold to another business that will further license or sell the information to others.
If you are a Nevada resident and you would like to opt out of the sale of your covered information, please complete this Opt-out Form. Note that this form requires your full name, street address, city, zip code and email address. We will send any correspondence concerning your request to you at the email address you provided. We will not accept requests submitted via other means (such as telephone, postal mail, or email), and we are not responsible for any forms that do not have complete information or are not properly sent.Back to Table of Contents
Tracking Technologies, Advertising and Analytics
We (and other parties on our behalf) sometimes utilize “cookie” technology, pixel technology, and other tracking technologies (“Tracking Technologies”) on or in connection with the Service. A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your browser on your device. Not all Web browsers accept cookies, and those that do usually provide a preference or setting that allows you to refuse and remove most types of browser cookies. If your browser does not accept cookies, you may still enjoy the Service but not all features and functionality may work.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many online services, we do not alter our practices when the Service receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” you can visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
We may also use third parties to serve ads on the Service through the use of Tracking Technologies. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of the Service and the other sites and services tracked by these third parties (“Interest-based Advertising”). Interest-based advertising (also known as online behavioral advertising) occurs when advertisements are displayed to you based on information collected from your online interactions over time and across multiple websites that you visit, or across multiple devices or online services that you may use. Companies that engage in interest-based advertising use this information to predict your preferences and show you ads that are most likely to be of interest to you. Some of the content, applications, and tracking technologies on our websites and mobile applications is controlled by third parties. We may use certain third-party technology vendors (such as Meta and Google) in connection with your activity with the Services, including for advertising purposes and to understand details about your use of the Services.
When you use our online Service, we may share information that we collect from you, such as your email (in hashed form), IP address or information about your browser or operating system, with our identity partners/service providers, including LiveRamp Inc. LiveRamp returns an online identification code that we may store in our first-party cookie for our use in online and cross-channel advertising and it may be shared with advertising companies to enable interest-based and targeted advertising. To opt-out of this use, please click here (https://optout.liveramp.com/opt_out).

We may use certain third-party technology vendors (such as Meta and Google) in connection with your activity with the Services, including for advertising purposes and to understand details about your use of the Services.
You may be able to opt out of some Interest-based Advertising by adjusting the settings on your browser. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, visit https://optout.aboutads.info/, https://youradchoices.com/appchoices, and https://optout.networkadvertising.org/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. For example, you may still see “contextual” ads even if you opt out of interest-based advertising. These ads, however, are based on the context of what you are looking at on the websites and pages you visit. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out webpages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different device or web browsers or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), your browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective.
We support the DAA Self-regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising. We are not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
