Visitors can edit their inferred demographic categories for websites or opt‐out of Google Analytics Advertising Features by visiting Ad Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps or any other available means. For example, NAI’s consumer opt‐out or Google

Analytics’ currently available opt‐outs for the web. We will not facilitate the merging of personally identifiable information with non‐personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless we have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger.
