About Our Ads
Tracking Technologies We Use
We or vendors we have hired use several common tracking technologies. These may include browser and flash cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies. These technologies are used to track our consumers and website visitors, including for the following reasons:
- To track new visitors to our websites.
- To recognize past customers.
- To store your password if you are registered on our website.
- To serve you with advertising content in which we think you will be interested. As part of this customization, we may observe your behaviors on this website or on other websites. We may also get information about your browsing history from our trusted business partners.
So we can better understand our audience, our customers, our website visitors, and their respective interests.

These ads may be based on information you submit on our website or third party sites. It may also be based on your activities or behaviors on our websites or on third party sites. We may use gathered information to serve you with advertisements on our websites or on third party websites.
Opting Out of Receiving Seeing Tracking-Based Ads
We work with third parties to help us with the online tracking. All such parties participate in the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program allows consumers to opt-out of having their online behavior tracked for advertising purposes. If you want to opt out, click here.
An advertiser may sponsor content on Outside Online, which may include logo placement in proximity to an article or series of articles, but that sponsor has NO INFLUENCE OVER, OR INPUT ON, the scope, content, or direction of editorial material. In addition, advertiser sponsorship in NO WAY indicates editorial endorsement of that advertiser.
Any content existing in editorial space on Outside Online is executed under the strictest guidelines set forth by the American Society of Magazine Editors and in conjunction with the organization's suggestions set forth in the Best Practices for Digital Media. Any content that originates from a source other than the editors of Outside magazine or Outside Online is clearly labeled as "Advertising" or otherwise noted.
