The Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) Opt-out Tool lets you Opt Out of Some Behavioral Advertising

Opt Out of Behavioral Advertising with the Network Advertising Initiative

The NAI Opt-out Tool was developed in conjunction with our members for the express purpose of allowing consumers to "opt out" of the behavioral advertising delivered by our member companies.

Using the Tool on the Network Advertising Initiative page linked to below, you can examine your computer to identify those member companies that have placed an advertising cookie file on your computer.

To opt out of an Network Advertising Initiative member's behavioral advertising program, simply check the box that corresponds to the company from which you wish to opt out. Alternatively, you can check the box labeled "Select All" and each member's opt-out box will be checked for you. Next click the "Submit" button. The Tool will automatically replace the specified advertising cookie(s) and verify your opt-out status.

Opting out of a network does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the network from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your Web preferences and usage patterns.

Opting out of an ad network program using the NAI Opt-out Tool should not affect other services provided by NAI members that rely on cookies, such as email or photo-hosting.

The Network Advertising Initiative has adopted a policy that all NAI member companies set a minimum lifespan of five years for their opt out cookies.
