our features, such as forums.

of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will
also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP

DoubleClick DART cookies

you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense
advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting").
The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing
sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as
on a site about hockey). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal
information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security
numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this
advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However,
this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the
inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising
program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements,
a new cookie will be added.

In the event that the web site (or a substantial portion of its
