This information collection is generally used for geographically customized ad purposes (e.g., showing a Boston Concert promotion only for visitors from Boston) or showing certain ads based on specific web sites visited (such as displaying cooking ads to someone who frequents sites sites about food and cooking).

DoubleClick DART cookies

We also may use tecnical items named "DART" cookies for technical ad serving through DoubleClick (DC), a subsidiary of Google. DC a cookie on your computing device when you are browsing the internet and visit a web site using DC's advertising (including some AdSense advertisements — Google Adsense). Furthermore, the DART cookie is used to serve ads specific to the visitor and his or her interests. In such a case the ads served will be targeted based on the visitor's previous browsing history (e.g. if you visited soccer sites you may see a Soccer Channel ad displayed when visiting a non related site, e.g. Food Network). DC's DART uses "nonpersonally identifiable information" and it does NOT track any personal information about you, such as your name, home address, your telephone number, email address, social security numbers, credit card numbers and bank account numbers. DC enables the user to opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this type of ad serving visiting DC's page here: http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx.

This can be also done with 3rd party programs such as AVG or Norton 360 by tweaking the program's preferences. Please note that doing so may affect your experience and the way you interact with TealPages.com, as well as with other websites that rely on a similar technology (e.g. you may not be able to log into your account, forums, etc.)

Simply removing cookies does not mean that the user permanently opted out of any ad program. Unless you have settings that explicitly reject cookies, the next time you visit a website site running the ads, a new cookie will be added to your browser.
