2. Opting out
2.1 How you can opt out of marketing
- If you don’t want to receive marketing communications from us, you can at any time use the “Unsubscribe” link present in all marketing emails from us or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please note that opting out of email marketing typically doesn’t mean that you won’t see ads from us, please see the section below on how you can opt out of web tracking, although it doesn’t mean that you will opt out of ads altogether.
2.2 How you can opt out of web tracking
- Most browsers allow you to block third-party scripts. This will limit the cookies that can be set by third-party scripts. However, this will not completely eliminate tracking by some third-party services as they may use first-party cookies.
- Most browsers also allow you to ask not to be tracked (it sends the “Do Not Track” request header). If you have enabled this feature, we will not track the pages you visit in a way that may enable us to connect them to your Personal Data. However, our page views may still be collected anonymously. Many of the third-party services we use for collecting anonymous data also respect the Do Not Track setting.
- You can opt out of interest-based advertising on these two pages: NAI consumer opt-out page and DAA opt-out page. This will not remove ads, but will for example remove the possibility for us to display ads to people that have visited our website. Note that these services themselves require cookies.
