Cox provides location-based advertising to its users to provide a personalized experience while surfing the Internet. This feature helps deliver offers and incentives from national brands and local businesses with content tailored to the customer's area.
- Location-based advertising uses the customer's zip code, including the last four digits, to identify their area and display relevant ads.
- Ads that are presented have nothing to do with your Internet surfing habits or history.
- Cox does not endorse any of the advertisers who purchase display ads through this location-based system.
Note: Cox does not sell your personal information to the presented advertisers. At no time does an advertiser even know which customers receive their ads online. This program is based on a double-blind system which means that neither the advertiser nor the ad network which sells the ads ever has access to your personal information.
Location-based ads may look just like any other you see online. They are not in addition to ads you would already see; they replace ads that would otherwise appear on your screen. You might find location-based advertising more relevant to you because it allows merchants to offer discounts and promotions based on your specific geographic location.
To opt out of location-based advertising, complete the following steps.
