Tack-it at times displays targeted advertisements based on your General Information and/or site usage. Sponsors (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, a women/mother age 18-24 from a particular geographic area, or a single male age 24-30 from a particular economic level.
Tack-it does not provide any Personally Identifiable or General Information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad.

Tack-it advertisers can include any number of service and retail companies. Tack-it does maintain applicant restrictions within these groups.
