Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on USAChurches.org to support our website. Third party advertisers on this website write their own ad copy, and we cannot be held responsible for inappropriate ad copy. Please bring it to our attention if you notice any inappropriate advertisement on this website. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Columbus real estate ads to someone in Columbus, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking websites).
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (for example, if you have been viewing sites about Columbus area churches, you may see Columbus church advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about football). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google advertising and privacy center.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
