Interest-Based Advertising

On Quidient Sites, Quidient may collect information about your online activities for use in providing you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. This section of the Privacy Policy provides details and explains how to exercise your choices.

You may see certain ads on other websites because Quidient participates in advertising networks.

The networks use this information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information Quidient’s ad networks may collect includes data about your visits to websites that participate in the relevant advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites.
