You may find the following information helpful as it relates to your computer settings. 

A “cookie” is a piece of information a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website that allows the site to recognize your computer each time you visit. You have the choice to set your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) It is up to you whether to allow us to send you cookies. However, if you do not accept cookies from us, your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited. 

Web beacons (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or web bugs) are small strings of code that provide a way for us to deliver a small graphic image (usually invisible) on a web page or in an email. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed.  Since web beacons are the same as any other content request on the web page, you cannot opt out of them. However, any that are used in conjunction with cookies are rendered ineffective when you opt out of cookies or change the cookies setting in your browser.

Do Not Track:  We are in favor of the development of a Do Not Track standard that gives consumers control over the collection and use of web browsing information. When such a standard is finalized, we intend to respond to Do Not Track browser settings accordingly.  See for more information.  For information about how to opt-out of the customization of advertising by many ad networks that collect and use non-personal information on AARP web sites, you can visit  Even if you opt out of the sharing of information for the purposes of customizing ads to your interest, we may continue to collect and use such information for other purposes.
