ITN is a member of IAB, we use AAID/IDFA to deliver customized advertising.
Users can follow these steps to reset or turn off AAID/IDFA:
Reset Advertising ID on Android
The steps for resetting your ad ID and turning off ad personalization are essentially the same for all versions of Android, though things may vary slightly. Head to Settings > Google > Ads > Reset advertising ID and click OK when the confirmation screen appears. It would be best if you also wanted to make sure to opt-out of ads personalization. Or, on other versions of Android, it might say "Opt-out of interest-based ads," and you may find a toggle switch or checkbox to enable it.
Reset Advertising Identifier on iOS
On your iPhone or iPad, head to Settings > Privacy > Reset Advertising Identifier and then Reset Identifier when the prompt comes up. Just like with Android, here, you should also turn on the option to limit ad tracking.
How do I reset or limit Ad Tracking on mobile devices?
Your mobile device may be enabled to serve you targeted ads. If you are using an Apple device such as an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV you can turn off location-based ads provided by Apple. Instructions on how do this can be found here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202074.
If you are using a device that uses Android software such as a mobile phone and tablet, you can turn off certain types of ads. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en.
Tracking technologies and web beacons:
ITN may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has seen our advertisement. This allows us, for example, [to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one advertisement to another and to count the number of views].
