In addition, we may share one-way hashed (undecipherable) data with third party vendors using advertisement targeting products. Such third party vendors typically use hashed device identifiers to serve custom ads based on a user's prior visits to the Site. As a consequence, third party vendors may show our ads on other websites or mobile apps.
