We may send Users targeted ads, based on their location and activities within the Service (on the  Sites and in the App). We may also participate in third-party advertisement networks and allow  third-parties to use cookies, pixel tags and other tracking technologies on the Sites and App to  collect usage information and display targeted ads. 

For example, we may use Google’s AdMob to help us display targeted ads in the App. AdMob  uses cookies to serve advertisements based on your prior visits to the Service or other websites.  Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to Users based on  their visit to the Service and/or other websites on the Internet.
