Why Do I See Ads?
Visitors using ad blockers will have a choice to opt-in or out of seeing ads. Ads allow our site to keep running, so thank you to everyone who opts in.
You are able to click to opt in and see ads on our site, while keeping your ad blocker on to block ads elsewhere.
Once you opt in, we will remember your choice so you don’t need to see messaging on future visits.
If you change your mind and want to opt out of ads, as long as your ad blocker is still on, you will see an “A” icon above every ad which you can click on to change your decision and re opt-out.
Thanks and please send us a contact form message if you have any questions!
