Ad Targeting Policy
Experian Interactive, which operates websites such as FreeCreditReport.com, ProtectMyId.com, LowerMyBills.com, ClassesUSA.com, Pricegrabber.com, and other websites we may add from time to time, may share information about you and other customers collectively, but not specifically identifiable to you with our parent company, our affiliated companies, and with third parties. This information includes:
- Demographic information (gender, estimated age, and general geographic location, and your estimated purchase ability);
- Summarized census information and other publicly available information (estimated education level, homeownership status, and estimated occupation type); and
- Your inferred and expressed interests, including transactional information and product interests we derive from your visits to some of the sites listed above.
This information that we share includes information that we have collected, together with data from Experian Marketing Services, one of the members of the Experian family of companies.
The recipients of this information use it to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our family of websites and on the websites of third parties. The information is used only for marketing purposes. It is not used to make targeted offers that are priced differently based on estimated purchase ability.
The targeted advertising resulting from this information sharing is related to common product and service categories, such as travel and leisure, automotive, retail, financial services, electronics, pharmaceutical and consumer products, publication subscriptions and similar categories that you see advertised routinely. These advertisements are not based on data relating to adult content, individual or aggregate health information or records, precise geographic location, information derived from your individual credit report, or information relating to your financial accounts.
If you prefer that we do not share this information, and would not like to receive targeted advertising as described above, please see our Opt Out page. Note that if you opt out, you will still receive advertising. Also, if you opt out and later delete your cookies, use a different browser, or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your opt out choice.
