This means that Users may see advertising that is most likely to interest them and advertisers send their message to people who are most likely to be receptive, improving both the User’s experience and the effectiveness of the ads. In this statistical analysis and banner advertising targeting, we would disclose information to third parties only in aggregate form. Personal Information about you as an individual subscriber will not be provided to any third party without your consent.
