Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

An excerpt from that page includes information of how to manage advertising cookies:

“You can use the Ads Preferences Manager to manage the Google ads you see.

4. To create other TeachThought-produced ideas and media for teachers, including our podcast, newsletter, Professional Development company, and more.

That’s it. Most of this is done automatically by software to seamlessly deliver content to you. We have no Orwellian golems on staff to scrutinize personal information for nefarious gain. Scout’s honor.
