About Ads Served by Monster

Monster shows targeted job ads to you through our Career Ad Network. These ads appear on Monster sites and on third party web sites. Targeted job advertising is based on your interests, which are inferred from certain demographic and geographic data and the search terms you enter when using Monster and is not linked to your personally identifiable information without your permission. Visit our Career Ad Network page to learn more.

About Ads Served by Third Parties

Monster allows third-parties to show you ads on Monster. These companies can view, edit or set their own cookies and may use demographic, geographic, and behavioral information to show you targeted ads. To determine which targeted ads you see, we use third-party services to manage the behavioral, demographic, geographic and personal information we collect or infer about you. For example, if a person named “Mike” registers with Monster, we would infer and store a gender of “male”. We may combine this information with certain other non-personal information we get from third-parties, including information about your interests, to serve more relevant ads to you. Visit Third Party Advertising on for a list of companies who help deliver these ads. 

Monster does not provide any personal information to the third party advertisers on our site unless you choose to allow it. Monster has no control over, and is not responsible for, the practices of those third party advertisers. Monster encourages you to visit their web sites and review their privacy policies.
