What information does Pocket share with advertisers when I allow Pocket’s ad partners to set advertising cookies?

Pocket does not share personal information with advertisers, regardless if you opt-in to allow our ad partners to set advertising cookies or not. By accepting advertising cookies, our ad partners will be able to measure ad impressions and clicks, and your ads may be more personalized on other websites.
