Online behavioral advertising 

Some of the ads you receive on webpages are customized based on predictions about your interests generated from your visits over time and across different websites. This type of ad customization sometimes called online behavioral advertising is enabled through your computer browser and browser cookies. Such online behavioral advertising helps support the free content, products, and services we can provide you online.

 Online behavioral advertising is tailored to your likely interests by Kitsap Credit Union promoting (or other companies promoting their) products or services. Online behavioral advertising helps Kitsap Credit Union show relevant ads matching ads with broad interest categories or groups. Third party vendors can show your ads on sites across the Internet. Third-party vendors use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website.

 The benefits of online behavioral advertising help support sites you visit so that you can enjoy free content ranging from news to sports to recipes. At the same time, it helps advertisers reach the right people for their product and services.

 Kitsap Credit Union uses online behavioral advertising as a remarketing tool. Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preference and usage patterns.
