11. Use of Third Party Ad Networks
The majority of the online banner advertisements you see on the BigMansLand Web sites are displayed by BigMansLand. In addition, BigMansLandl also allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on BigMansLand Web sites. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. BigMansLand does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
BigMansLand may maintain relationships with a number of the third-party ad networks. Those ad networks that use persistent cookies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting.
