Help - General Advertising Information
To help offset the costs of running this site, Crooks and Liars utilizes numerous ad networks. This is a necessary evil required to pay the bills associated with running a popular video site.
Sometimes ads may appear that go against your personal beliefs, or even the beliefs of Crooks and Liars as a whole. We won’t discriminate against these advertisers and allow them to run. If however an ad is known to cause serious problems or is not in good taste, then we may take action to block it.
You may notice an advertisement showing an item considered local to your location. This is a practice known as geo-tagging. The advertising service uses your IP address and can get an estimated location for you. This is not a precise science and only works in a proximity. From that data, the ad service has the ability to serve ads that will more likely interest you.
