6. Does Mindful Magazine Serve Third-Party Advertisements?

Mindful Magazine may engage third-party advertising networks to display advertisements on our site. We may also employ third-party analytics providers to assess the usage of our site and our content’s viewership. These third-party network advertisers display ads based on your visits to our site and other sites you have visited. This practice helps us deliver ads for products or services you may find interesting. Ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors, and traffic measurement services can set and access their own cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies on your device to track certain behavioral data. This helps us serve relevant advertisements to you, prevents repetitive ads, and helps us understand the effectiveness of the ads delivered. While we engage various companies for ad serving, you can learn about this practice and opt-out of this type of advertising via the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) at http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp. Please note that our privacy policy does not cover these third-party advertisers’ data collection methods or the use of the data collected.
