Google's advertising practices

If you use Gmail, or send email to someone who does, Google scans the contents of your email and extracts what they think are relevant keywords in order to target you with ads. Sometimes this can give you ads that are inaccurate, inappropriate, or insensitive. Gmail users and recipients are unable to opt-out of the email scanning, keyword extraction, and profiling process.

Microsoft's advertising practices

Microsoft does not scan your email for the purpose of serving you ads.

And, you may opt-out of receiving ads that rely on this voluntary information at any time by visiting our opt-out page.
