Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

Hit City Video allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Hit City Video site. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the Hit City Video site. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

Hit City Video does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Hit City Video to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the Hit City Video site, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks (see links below) for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. Hit City Video's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.
