California “Do Not Sell My Info” Notice

Effective January 1, 2020

We don’t charge you to use Nextdoor.  Instead, businesses and organizations pay us to show you ads for their products and services and, like many companies online, we sometimes use services provided by Google, Facebook, and others to help deliver interest-based ads to you.  California law may classify our limited information sharing with advertising partners and use of these services as a “sale” of personal information from which California residents have the right to opt-out.  This is because our advertising partners and the companies that provide these services collect limited information from our users (e.g., cookies, advertising IDs, Internet Protocol addresses, and usage activity) to help them understand how people interact with advertising content on and off Nextdoor and to serve ads that they think users may want to see based on their online activity.  

It is important to note that we do not sell your name, email address, physical address, or phone number unless you give us specific permission.  But we wanted to take this opportunity to explain your choices regarding how to control the limited information that is shared.  More information about cookies and advertising IDs is available in our Cookie Policy and more information about the information we collect, use, and share is available in our Privacy Policy.  

You have the ability to restrict this use of cookies and advertising IDs.  There are a few different ways you can do this for cookies:

● You can use your browser’s settings to clear, delete, or prevent cookies.  Instructions for how to do this on the different types of browsers can be found here:  https://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.  

● We use Google Ad Manager and Google Marketing Platform to serve and measure advertising on Nextdoor.  Please go here and here to opt-out of any personalized ads and cookies.  

● We sometimes use Facebook to help serve advertising.  Please go here to restrict Facebook’s use of cookies.

● Many of our advertisers collect cookies by using a tag or pixel implemented by a company that is a member of the National Advertising Initiative and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance, both of which participate in opt-out cookies.  These opt-out cookies are placed on your browser and member companies have committed to honor are required to honor your request to not receive advertisements tailored to your interests and based on your activity online.  You have these opt-out cookies placed on your browser by going to http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1 and https://www.aboutads.info/choices.  Please note that if you have configured your browser’s settings to block cookies you may not be able to set the opt-out cookie and may see a message that an “Opt-Out is Blocked by Browser Settings,” or that an “Opt-Out is Temporarily Unavailable.”  In addition, if you clear or delete cookies on a particular browser, you will need to reset the opt-out cookie.

If you use different computers or browsers, you may need to replicate your choices across those computers and browsers.  

You can also restrict the collection and/or use of advertising IDs on your mobile device.  Instructions for how to do this can be found here:   https://www.networkadvertising.org/mobile-choice.  If you use multiple mobile devices, you will need to replicate your selections across these devices.
