use information collected from cookies and similar technologies to try to make the ads
you see online more relevant to your interests. This is called interest-based advertising.
Our use of these services may constitute a “sale” of Personal Information as defined
under the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA). You can opt-out of the use of
your information for interest-based advertising by:

advertisements online, but they may be less relevant to you.
