The Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE) hopes to deliver to you advertising for products and services you need or want. There are many ways to do this in the online advertising world. For example, CORE partners with websites and applications with whom you have shared your interests, conditions and concerns directly, and asks that they serve our ads to users who have expressed an interest in CORE’s services. We may also partner with advertising companies that may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of pixel tags), or use other technologies to serve you ads based on your web browsing activity, purchases, interests and/or other information — a practice commonly referred to as interest-based advertising (IBA) or online behavioral advertising (OBA). These advertising companies may also use these types of technologies to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile phone or a laptop, and serve you ads on websites you visit and applications you use. You can read more about IBA at a site offered by the advertising industry’s Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), aboutads.info.
We want it to be easy for you to understand how we and our business partners use information to serve ads tailored for you and to opt-out from targeting based on IBA. To this end, we have licensed the DAA Advertising Options icon, , which appears in our ads served using IBA, and agreed to adhere to the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for IBA.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
We may share information with third parties
We may share the information we collect about you with third parties who we have engaged to help us provide the services. In each case, we will ensure that these third parties have agreed to safeguard your data.
We may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns and related site information. These data reflect site-usage patterns gathered during visits to our website each month, but they do not contain information that personally identifies you unless you have given us permission to share that information.
Interest-based advertising and your choices
To opt out: You can learn more about the companies we work with that collect information on our websites and who serve advertisements to you on our websites below. The below resources also contain opt-out links.
- Our advertisers who participate in the Facebook/Nielsen program:
- Participants in the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://optout.aboutads.info).
- Opting out of mobile advertising:
Please note: Opting out of advertising networks services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our sites or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms. If you delete your cookies, you may also delete your opt-out preferences.
