Some cookies on our site may not be delivered by us, but by third parties.
Certain cookies, which generally fall within the categories of “Analytics Cookies” and “Targeting Cookies,” may be considered by some to fall under the definition of a “sale” or “sharing” of personal information for purposes of some state laws. You can opt out of these types of cookies by following the below instructions:
- Our websites & similar properties – You can opt out of third-party and other cookies on the site you were previously on by returning to that site and selecting “Customize Cookie Settings” in the footer at the bottom of the page. This will open a menu where you can opt out of certain cookies including Analytics Cookies and Targeting Cookies. You will need to take this step for every browser and device you use and on every General Mills property you visit, and renew the choice if you clear your browser cookies.
- Our mobile apps – If you navigated to this page from a mobile app, you can opt out of third-party and other cookies or other technologies within that app by selecting “Manage Cookies or Similar Technologies” from within your account or settings menus. This will open a menu where you can opt out of certain technologies including Analytics Technologies and Targeting Technologies. You will need to take this step for every app and device you use and renew your choices if you change certain settings or reinstall the app.
- Industry-wide opt-out – There is also an industry-wide opt out program for Targeting Cookies that allows you to opt out of receiving ad targeting cookies from a broad array of third parties on any site, not just ours. You can access that opt out program by clicking here: Submit an Ad Choices Request
