Don’t worry, we do not actually sell your personal information. But we do include code on our website from third-parties that may set uniquely identifiable cookies for things like ad personalization. Disabling that for all but functionally required identifiers is a simple two-step process.

Step 1 is available to all of our visitors and covers the vast majority of data sharing. For most visitors to our website, it is all that needs to be done. Step 2 is only available to California residents, but we are working hard to make it available to everyone in the future.

Step 1 – Browser-based sharing

This tool will instruct third-parties to refrain from the use of personally identifiable information while browsing our website. This usually means that these services will not set uniquely identifiable cookies in your web browser. For example, clicking the opt-out button will direct Google AdSense to deliver non-personalized ads.

Note: Certain features of our website may be disabled as a result of this action.

Additionally, we sometimes run experiments on our website to optimize our design and content. To opt-out of participating in those experiments, click here.
