The P&G family of brands and trusted third parties provide a variety of services on our websites using cookies. We place cookies on your device in order to provide you with personalized access to essential services, enhance website functionality and to deliver to you online ads that are tailored to your interests. These tailored ads are called Interest-Based Ads or Online Behavioral Advertising.
P&G adheres to the EDAA Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising and Directive 2009/136/EC of the European Parliament.
What is a Cookie?
Cookies on Our Websites
Non-Operational Cookies / Other Technologies
Online Behavioral Advertising (OBA) Cookies
We also collect information through OBA Cookies to serve Interest-Based Ads according to certain general interest categories or segments that we have inferred based on information such as:
- The web pages you view and links you click on P&G websites and other websites you visit.
- Mobile applications you use.
- The P&G brand emails you view and links you click from within the email.
- Demographic data.
- Offline and online purchase data.
We have designed our interest-based advertising systems to deliver Interest-Based Ads to you based only on data that does not personally identify you.
We do not collect sensitive personal information (as defined by Directive 2009/136/EC) from you without first obtaining your consent.
We use third party service providers to help administer our interest-based advertising systems. We require that these third party service providers protect the information they use on P&G’s behalf for online behavioral advertising and not to use it for any other purpose.
We Respect your Privacy
Your Choices regarding receipt of interest-based advertising on websites:
You can prevent your receipt of interest-based advertising on websites by deleting and declining cookies in your web browser(s). You can read more about cookies at http://allaboutcookies.org/cookies/.
If you don’t want us to place non-operational or online behavioral advertising cookies on your device, you can refuse. Note: Refusing online behavioral advertising cookies does not mean you won’t see any online ads. It just means that your ads for P&G products won’t be based on your interests. You may still receive interest-based ads from other companies – where you have not opted out of their cookies.
