Embedded content from other websites

Wellspring Christian Ministries (WCM) uses the AdWords feature of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers. WMC and Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to our Site. This means that vendors including Google will display WCM promotional material on other sites you visit across the Internet.
You may opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers including AdWords by visiting the Google Ads Preference Manager. To provide website visitors more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google has developed an Opt-out Browser add-in, which is available by visiting Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, to enable you to opt-out of Google’s programs.
