Non-essential cookies - Targeting and Marketing
You may see Drive Wiser owned website advertisements on third-party websites as we use display advertising techniques to target consumers. Some advertisements you may see will be facilitated through a Display Advertising Network.
One technique provided by Advertising Networks is called Behavioural Targeting. Advertisements can be tailored to broadcast advertising of a more relevant nature by capturing user's online behaviour. These behaviours can then be used to inform a network to place an advertisement on a website that operates as part of the advertising network.
This site uses targeting cookies that support behavioural advertising. Some of these cookies are placed on your computer by DoubleClick to display our advertisements and also use to evaluate the effectiveness of our advertising and promotions on third party websites. More information about behavioural advertising and how to manage targeting cookies can be found at; www.youronlinechoices.eu
Please note that by 'opting out' of receiving cookies from any network, you may disable the ability for a network to deliver advertisements that are targeted to your interests.
