How Does AmeriShield Maintain my "Do Not Sell" Choice?
If you do not log in to your account (or do not have an account with us) and instead set a "Do Not Sell" preference that is specific to the site that you are visiting, please be aware that the setting will only work if your browser is set to accept cookies. Likewise, if you clear your browser cookies, the cookie-based "Do Not Sell" setting will be erased, and you will need to reset the setting for that web domain.
If you choose to sign in and set a "Do Not Sell" setting tied to your account, we will attempt to identify and honor that setting whenever you are logged into the AmeriShield website. This persistent setting will have no effect, however, when you have not signed in to the AmeriShield website. In that case, only the setting set for a particular website, if one exists, will apply.
Don’t Want Cookies?
Most web browsers let you choose whether to accept cookies. Most also let you delete cookies already set. The choices available, and the mechanism used, will vary from browser to browser. Such browser settings are typically found in the "options", "tools" or "preferences" menu. You may also consult the browser’s "help" menu.
There are online tools available for clearing all cookies left behind by the websites you have visited, such as www.allaboutcookies.org. Usually, deletion of cookies will anonymize the information associated with the pixel and a website will not receive any further associated information. Please note at this time, we do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include "do not track" instructions.
