Important things to note about cookie-based web browser opt-outs (such as those utilized by the DAA, EDAA, APDA and DAAC):
Blocked cookies: The opt-out cookie may not work if your browser is configured to block third-party cookies.
Deleting or protecting opt-outs: If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again. There are browser plugins to help you preserve your opt-out cookies.
Only this browser: The opt-out only applies to the browser in which you set it. For example, if you set the opt-out while using Firefox, but then use Chrome, the opt-out will not be active in Chrome. To opt out in Chrome, you will need to repeat the opt-out process. This is because the cookies cannot be read between different browsers or browser profiles.

You may have more options depending on your mobile device and operating system. Most device operating systems (e.g., iOS for Apple devices and Android for Google and Samsung devices) provide their own instructions on how to limit or prevent use of Information to deliver personalized or interest-based advertising. You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for your device’s operating system to learn more about these features and how to exercise your choices.
Choices for precise location information. To limit our mobile apps’ access to precise location information from your mobile device, you can:
(1) Respond ‘No’ to location permission prompts that are presented during your use of our app and/or
(2) Restrict the relevant device settings.
Either of these actions will also prevent third parties from collecting precise location data through our apps and will prevent our use or sharing of such information for all purposes including advertising. You may also limit the collection of precise location information from websites through browser settings.

In particular, your Information may be transferred to, and processed in the United States, where some of our systems are located. If and to extent that any consent, authorization or acknowledgement from you is required under any applicable law in your country or territory to enable the lawful transfer to any such country, including the United States, then, to the fullest extent permitted by any such applicable law, you hereby provide, and shall be deemed to have lawfully provided, on an unconditional and legally binding basis, all such consents, authorizations and acknowledgements.
