About Interest-Based Advertising
P&G ads marked with– “Ad Choices“, and - are “interest-based” ads. Interest-based ads are advertisements from our P&G family of brands or our advertising partners that we hope you find more relevant to your interests.
We deliver interest-based ads to your device by using a cookie or other identifier assigned to your device. These cookies or other identifiers are placed in general interest categories that we have inferred based on information such as:
- The web pages you view and links you click on P&G websites and other websites you visit.
- The mobile applications you use.
- The P&G brand emails you view and links you click in the email.
- Demographic data.
- Offline and online purchase data.
We have designed our systems to deliver such ads based only on data that does not personally identify you.
Please note that we rely on third parties to help us deliver interest-based ads and they may collect information about you, including on P&G and other companies’ sites, or mobile application activities, through cookies, and other technologies.
