Interest-Based Online Advertising

Lake Michigan College uses interest-based online advertising (also called “targeted advertising,” “remarketing” or “behavioral advertising”) in order to effectively reach community members who may be interested in our services and to better understand their behavior. We work with companies (such as Google) who collect audience data such as age, gender, geographic location and interests to provide advertising targeted to suit your interests and preferences.

For example, you may see certain ads on other websites because we contract with Google and other similar companies to target our ads based on information we or they have collected, including information that was collected through automated means (such as cookies). These companies also use automated technologies to collect information when you click on our ads and visit our website, which helps track and manage the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.  

You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests by visiting the consumer opt-out page for the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and edit or opt-out your Google Display Network ads’ preferences at http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/. These opt-out and preference control pages are specific to the individual browser used to visit it, and not operated by LMC.
