Advertisements. The ads appearing on this Web site are delivered

online at uclick Sites. Additionally, some ads are generated by third
party ad serving systems that also may place a cookie on your browser

if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience
(for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages
13-24 who have viewed sports content) and you respond to that ad, the
advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the
audience they are trying to reach. As always remember, we only authorize
our third-party ad servers to employ anonymous cookies for ad delivery
and anonymous targeting. Our third-party ad servers do not collect, nor
do we give them access to, any personally identifying information about
you. To find out more about those specific third party ad serving systems,

What about kids' personally identifiable

circumstances where uclick believes that such collection is permitted
uclick may ask prospective users to provide their age during the registration
process and on other areas of the uclick Sites. If a user indicates that
he or she is under the age of 13 then all personal data collected during
the registration process is automatically deleted except uclick may retain
and use limited information, such as the child's e-mail address, for a
limited period of time, in those cases where uclick believes that the
collection and use of such information is permitted under COPPA.
If a parent believes that his or her child has submitted personal information
to uclick, he or she can contact us via e-mail or postal mail as listed
below. uclick will promptly delete the information upon learning that
it relates to a child under the age of 13.
