What is the CCPA?
At Shift, we fully support the rights of California residents to exercise their rights under the CCPA with regard to how their personal information is used.
What are personalized ads?
Personalized advertisements, also known as retargeting ads, are ads that are shown to you as a result of an action you have taken on the advertisers website. For example, if you visited an online shoe store, but didn’t make a purchase, the advertiser may opt to serve you personalized retargeting ads in an attempt to encourage you to revisit their website.
