We do not provide Personal Information to any third parties for use outside of the Offerings. We may serve advertisements and also allow third party advertisements through the Offerings. These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users and may come from third party companies (“ad networks”), including third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. The advertisements may target users who fit a certain general profile category based on anonymized information inferred from information provided to us by a user, including Personal Information, usage patterns of particular users, or your activity on Third Party Services.
