What is AdChoice?
When you search, browse, and otherwise interact on eBay and affiliated websites, we're able to use the information we collect to make the ads you see on eBay as relevant to you as possible. We may also work with other websites or ad networks to share information and show you customised ads elsewhere. The information we share can't be used to personally identify you.
AdChoice is our program that lets you choose whether to receive customised advertising on eBay and on the websites of our advertising partners. Whenever possible, we'll display advertising customised to your interests. If you'd prefer not to see customised ads, you can use AdChoice at any time to tell us your preference. You'll still see ads—they just won't be tailored to your interests.
Specifying your preferences from an advertisement
You can set your preferences for all the browsers you use, or just certain ones.
To opt out for a single browser:
To opt out for multiple browsers:
After you opt out you'll see this message: You have opted out of AdChoice. You'll still see ads with the AdChoice link and icon, but the ads won't be customised.
You don't need to be signed in to eBay for AdChoice to adhere to your preferences, as long as you haven't deleted the cookies in your browser.
If you want to switch back to receiving customised ads based on your interests you can follow the steps above, but choose the option to opt in. Alternatively, you can specify your preferences in My eBay, as described below.
Specifying your preferences from My eBay
To specify your advertising preferences using My eBay:
How is my information used?
When you use a website or service (such as search), fill out forms on a website, or otherwise interact on the Internet, this information can help determine what ads you'd be interested in seeing. We may work with other websites or ad networks to help bring you relevant ads, and these partners may also have access to some of the information we collect. eBay does not share any information that personally identifies you with any of our partners.
Will I continue to see advertising if I opt out?
Yes. You'll still see online ads, but if you opt out, the ads will be generic and won't be tailored to your interests.
