and (each a “Site”).

Our Sites will place a cookie on the hard drive of your internet protocol device. A "cookie" is a file,

which allows us to track the interests of users. While we recommend that users enable cookies on

their browsers, the decision remains in the hands of the individual. (The management of cookies

will be different depending on each user's internet protocol device - refer to your browser help

menu for further information).

Use of Cookies

We use cookies for a number of reasons:

● For statistical purposes to track how many individual unique users we have and how often

they visit our website. We collect data listing which of our pages are most frequently

visited and by which types of users and from which countries.

● We use third parties to collect anonymous user information including through the use of

cookies (flash and non-flash) and web beacons. Visit how to learn more information about how we use a

third party service to collect and use information on our Sites.

● Both Warner Bros. Discovery and third party advertisers will generate cookies to collect

statistical data such as whether a user has seen an advertisement and if so, how long

ago, how many users have seen an advertisement and how many users have seen it

more than once.

● Placing cookies on your computer means we can serve you adverts that you might be

more interested in, and allows us to control the number of times you see them and

measure how effective the ad campaign has been. This helps us to keep the Sites free of


You can turn cookies off but if you do this you may not be able to use as many services on our

Sites and you might see more pop-ups and other intrusive advertising, as we won't be able to limit

what you see using cookies. You will however still be able to view editorial content.

By using this Site you are agreeing to the use of cookies as described.

Use of Browser fingerprinting

We may use browser fingerprinting when a third party wishes to accurately track its advertising

conversion without using cookies. The technique uses the characteristics of your browser to

uniquely identify your computing device but not you as an individual, and hence it is not used to

target advertising at an individual. Browse fingerprinting cannot be controlled by user configured

browser settings in the same way as cookies. By using this Site you are agreeing to the use of

browser fingerprinting as described.

Personalised Advertising

Warner Bros. Discovery currently delivers Online Behavioural Advertising (OBA). OBA allows us

to deliver targeted advertising to visitors to our Sites. OBA works by showing you adverts which

are based on the type of content you have been reading, and delivering adverts which we believe

may be of interest to you.

As you browse our Sites one of the cookies we place on your computer will be an advertising

cookie so we can understand what sort of pages you're interested in. Some of our partners prefer

to use browser fingerprinting instead of cookies to uniquely identify your device to improve the

accuracy of their advertising billing.

This information we collect about your computer enables us to group you with other computers

who have shown similar interests. We can then display advertising to you which is based on these

interests. For instance if you have been reading a lot of food and drink articles we may decide to

show you more adverts based on food and drink.

Behavioural retargeting is another form of OBA which enables us and some of our advertising

partners to show you ads based on your online reading away from Warner Bros. Discovery

websites. For example, if you have visited the website of an online clothes shop you may start

seeing ads from that same shopping site displaying special offers or showing you the products

that you were browsing. This allows companies to advertise to website visitors who leave their

website without making a purchase.

We may also want to share behavioural data with other websites. This may mean that when you

are on other websites you are served advertising based on your behaviour on our Sites, and on

our Sites you may be served advertising based on your behaviour on other sites.

If you want to opt out of receiving OBA this does not mean that you will no longer receive

advertising when you are using this Site. It just means that the advertising you see will not be

customised to you.

Opting out of cookies

Our Sites use Google DoubleClick technology and cookies to serve interest based advertising.

DoubleClick offers consumers the opportunity to select a persistent opt-out cookie to prevent

information from being uniquely associated with their browsers. This way, a user can opt out of

DoubleClick's cookies without erasing or altering other cookies associated with a browser.

To opt out of DoubleClick cookies, a user can go to,

and click on the ‘Opt out’ button. The user can verify the opt-out process by checking that the cookie used in the browser reads "id=opt_out". This opt-out procedure must be

performed for all browser versions on all of the computers that an individual uses.
