We or our third-party service providers also may use collected information to establish connections among related web browsers and devices (such as smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs) for targeted advertising, analytics, attribution and reporting purposes. These third parties may match your browsers or devices if you log in to the same online service on multiple devices, or if your devices share similar attributes that support an inference that they are used by the same person or household. This means that information about your activity on Websites or apps on your current browser or device may be combined with information collected from your other browsers or devices.
