These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the Beanhunter Site.

The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the Beanhunter Site, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks (see links below) for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices.
