Targeted Advertising Choices

WarnerMedia, our affiliates, and third parties may collect information about applications you use, websites you visit, and other information from across websites, services, apps, and your devices and browsers over time, in order to help serve advertising that will be more relevant to your interests on and off WarnerMedia digital services (“targeted advertising”).

Important things to note about cookie-based web browser opt-outs (such as those utilized by the DAA, EDAA, APDA and DAAC):

  • Blocked cookies: The opt-out cookie may not work if your browser is configured to block third-party cookies.
  • Deleting or protecting opt-outs: If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again. There may be browser plugins to help you preserve your opt-out cookies.
  • Only this browser: The opt-out only applies to the browser in which you set it. For example, if you set the opt-out while using Firefox, but then use Chrome, the opt-out will not be active in Chrome. To opt out in Chrome, you will need to repeat the opt-out process. This is because the cookies cannot be read between different browsers or browser profiles.
  • The opt-out does not block or delete cookies: It also does not prevent the use of cookies or other technologies for purposes other than targetedadvertising. If you opt out, data may still be collected about your web browsing activities (including for research, analytics, and internal operations) and you will still see advertising. Ads may be selected, for example, based on the content of the web page in which they are shown. If you wish to block or delete cookies altogether, you can use web browser settings to do so.
  • App Choices. To learn more about targeted advertising on mobile apps and to opt out of this type of advertising by third parties that participate in the DAA’s AppChoices tool, please visit the Ad choice link to download the version of AppChoices for your device. For certain of our digital services, you can manage your preferences through our consent management platform.
  • Device Options. You may have more options depending on your mobile or connected device and operating system. Most device operating systems (e.g., iOS for Apple devices and Android for Google and Samsung devices) provide their own instructions on how to limit or prevent use of Information to deliver personalized or targeted advertising. You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for your device’s operating system to learn more about these features and how to exercise your choices.

To limit our mobile apps’ access to precise location information from your mobile device, you can:

  • Respond ‘No’ to location permission prompts that are presented during your use of our app and/or
  • Restrict the relevant device settings.

Either of these actions will prevent our use or sharing of such information for all purposes including advertising. You may also limit the collection of precise location information from websites through browser settings.

We also offer an opt-out from some of our own targeted advertising activities.

  • To opt out on a web browser, click the “Opt Out” button below, and we will apply your opt-out to data in our internal databases that we have associated with the browser where you opted out. We will not collect, use, or transfer this data for future targeted advertising campaigns.
  • To opt out on a mobile or other connected device (e.g., gaming console or an app on a smart TV): use device settings as described above in “Choices for third-party targeted advertising on mobile apps and devices.” We will honor opt-outs that we receive by limiting certain advertising activities on that device in accordance with device setting.

Please note that if you opt out:
