We'll sometimes show you ads or other recommendations based on your activity on Pinterest.

We base these recommendations on things like the Pins you save or the topics you follow. If your settings allow, we may also use information from our ad partners and other sites you visited recently to recommend things to you. For example, if you visit a lot of food blogs, we might show you more recipe Pins.

You can adjust which info we use to show you ads and other recommendations in your settings by following the instructions below.
