Why Do We Collect and Use Information?
Advertising supports free content and experiences we all love on the web.
Our goal is to make advertising more effective by helping to display content
that may be of interest to you. Relevant ads are less annoying and help the
services that depend on advertising because advertisers pay more for effective ads.

We may collect information such as your browser type (e.g., Firefox or Internet Explorer),
operating system (e.g., Macintosh or Windows), Internet provider (e.g., Sky, Deutsche Telekom,

address, phone number, e-mail address, Social Security Number, credit card information, insurance
plan numbers, financial account numbers, or health related information.
