As it relates to the “Information We Automatically Collect” section above, in some browsers, you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites except those that you trust. You can also opt out of interest-based targeting provided by participating ad servers through the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://optout.aboutads.info/). You may also opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) on NAI’s Application.
If you limit the ability of websites and applications to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience and/or lose the ability to access the services, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings, such as login information.
If you access any links to third party websites available to you via the Services that are provided by third parties (including, without limitation, any social media tools, plugins, or widgets), you will be subject to such the policies of those third parties. We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information (including information related to interest-based advertising), and we are, therefore, not responsible for the content or privacy practices of third parties (or of any websites or applications provided by third parties).

- Do Not Track. While some internet browsers offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked, these features are not yet uniform and there is no common standard that has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators. Therefore, we do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to our websites.

When you click on a link to a third-party website from our website, your activity and use on the linked website is governed by that website’s policies, not by those of Shamrck. We encourage you to visit their websites and review their privacy and user policies.
