The Browser Extensions:



Some Things You Should Know


"Protect My Choices" applies to online behavioural advertising by participating companies. Once you install this extension, you will still receive online advertising from participating companies, and the Websites you visit may still collect information for other purposes.

As more companies join the industry self-regulatory program, their opt outs will be added to these Protect My Choices extensions. The extensions function differently in each browser and in some cases you may be required to update the extension. Please review the information for your browser. You can confirm that your opt outs have been set for each browser at the Opt-Out tool found here, and you can always check the status of your extensions by clicking Extensions, Add-ons or Manage Add-ons under Tools in the Window menu.

These extensions and your opt out choices apply only in their respective browsers, so you should separately set your preferences for other browsers or computers you may use.

Finally, the use of these browser extensions is governed by the Terms of Service and their individual licenses.
