Third-Party Ad Networks
You may opt out of many third-party ad networks, including those operated by members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”).

Opting out of one or more NAI member or DAA member networks (many of which will be the same) only means that those members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our Site or other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt-out may no longer be effective. Additional information is available on NAI’s and DAA’s websites accessible by the above links.
We invite you to post content to the MyKukun Service, including your comments, pictures, articles about home renovations, and any other information that you would like to be available on the MyKukun Service. If you post your own content on our Site, App, or the MyKukun Service, your user name and the contents of your post will be available to all visitors to our Site and App, and we cannot prevent such information from being used in a manner that may violate this Policy, the law, or your personal privacy.
The MyKukun Service may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites.
Security of My Personal Information
We have implemented security measures to protect the personal information we collect. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, mobile device, or computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

You may opt out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the communication or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt out of receiving communications about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you communications about your account or in response to your inquiries or requests.
