AOL Puts “The User” In Driver’s Seat

AOL has been busy remaking its brand through a series of new product launches and innovations. Today, the media company announced it will let consumers opt out of behaviorally targeted advertising.
“We want to make the opt-out process as simple and transparent as possible,” said Jules Polonetsky, Chief Privacy Officer, AOL. “We urge the industry to join us in ensuring that users who take steps to minimize the data they provide have their choices maintained.”
AOL’s display ad network is the largest in the world, with a combined reach of more than 91% of online consumers in the U.S. across more than 7,000 websites.
