What we can do, however, is inform you about the cookies that we use and how you can opt-out from using them, if you choose. Just remember, cookies power the advertising and the advertising pays for the Site.

More Advertising Disclosures

Just so we are clear about how we use advertising on the site, below are some of the most common kinds of sponsorships on Boing Boing:
1. Sponsored posts, sections, themes, or categories: A marketer sometimes sponsors a category, section, post, or series of posts within a particular theme. At the top of those posts, the sponsor of that section is identified.
2. Widgets: A marketer sponsors a technology, widget or interface feature on the site that we think enhances the BB experience for you.
3. Advertisers' Web sites: As part of a campaign, one or more of us might do some writing on a marketer's Web site. Banner ads or posts may promote our contributions and link to the advertiser's site. If a sponsorship is involved in such a post, we'll say so.
4. Sponsor “shout-outs”: These are posts that thank our sponsors and may include a message from the advertiser.
5. Sponsored videos: A marketer sponsors a series of videos on a particular theme or over a given time period. That sponsorship may include interstitial or embedded ads within the video and/or branding of the video player.
6. Contests: A marketer may sponsor a contest on the site. We hope you win!
7. Advertorial: Any advertisements that are presented in an editorial format will be prominently marked as sponsored.
8. Sometimes, when videos match up via a script we swap out YouTube for a player who shares revenue with us.
9. Traditional banner ads: We have strict guidelines on the banner advertisements that we accept. Expanding banners are only delivered to each browser once daily. Animated ads can't be longer than 30 seconds. Audio must be user-initiated. And of course, no pop-ups or pop-unders. Unfortunately, ads that break those rules sometimes do slip through our automated system.
