Thank you for visiting rollingstone.com (“Site”) a site owned and operated by Rolling Stone LLC and its affiliates. Advertising enables us to provide the rich content on our Site which we know you enjoy. In order to provide a more relevant online experience, some of the advertisements that you see on our Site are customized to your perceived interests based on your previous online activity on our Site and other third party websites. This information may be used to predict your interest in future advertising related to those interests. To further provide customized advertising to you, some of our third party advertisers and service providers may also collect and use information about your visits on this Site and other third party web sites, as well as information received from other sources. These advertising practices are called online behavioral advertising.
Where can I learn more about the information collected?
What choices do I have about online behavioral advertising from this Site?
You can opt out from receiving advertisements relevant to your interests from third parties that participate in the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of targeted advertising from member companies. If you would like more information regarding which third party companies we use to provide these services who may be serving cookies or other tracking tools on our Site, please click here. If you opt-out of receiving targeted advertisements in this manner, you will continue to receive advertising messages after you opt-out, but they will not be customized to you based on your use of the Site and/or third party websites. If you would like more information about advertisers' use of tracking technologies and about your option not to accept these cookies, you can go to www.networkadvertising.org. If you would like to learn more about how interest-based information is collected, whether the companies we use are part of an industry network regarding behavioral advertising and to know your choices about not having information used in this manner, you can go to www.aboutads.info. You may access www.aboutads.info/choices to opt out of behavioral advertising with select companies. Please note that the-opt out is cookie-based and will only affect the specific computer and browser on which the opt-out is applied. If you delete your browser cookies and want to continue to be opted-out of targeted interest-based advertisements, you will need to opt-out again.
Can I rely on my browsers’ Do Not Track option?
Some third party browsers provide “do not track” machine readable signals for websites which are automatically applied by default and therefore do not necessarily reflect our visitor’s choice as to whether they wish to receive advertisements tailored to their interests. As a result we do not respond to these signals. Go to www.networkadvertising.org or www.aboutads.info if you wish to learn more about your options to not accept tracking cookies for the purpose of receiving targeted interest-based advertisements.
