Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use third party advertisements to support our site. Some 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 address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York sports store ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing triathlon ads to someone who frequents triathlon sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, usually by clicking Tools > Options on the menu. However, this can negatively affect your browsing experience or result in the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
