10. Third-Party Privacy and Opt-Out Information

101Biz.co.za supports Do Not Track (“DNT”). If you enable DNT in your web browser, we stop collecting information about you consistent with the DNT setting. Below are links to the privacy policies of some of our partners and links to advertising opt outs to help you to further manage your online privacy.

Google's Ad Exchange and other technologies help deliver ads on 101Biz.co.za and its mobile apps. Opting out does not mean you will not get ads; it means they will not collect non-personal information about you, nor will they serve ads targeted to your interests.

Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) is part of the industry’s self-regulatory initiative. If you would like to opt out of third-party partners' non-personal information tracking, visit the NAI opt-out section. Opting out does not mean you will not receive advertising on 101Biz.co.za. It ensures that your non-personal information will not be automatically tracked by the sites you have opted out of.
