Mandy: Great, there are like three Brazil nuts. Tara: I’m allergic. Point taken. Better sleep with both eyes open tonight. Chris: Guess who’s getting a nut tree next year?! Justin: I’d smile politely while scattering the nuts around the living room as if I was blessing the place without breaking eye contact.


Hannah C.: Use it on the giver for its intended purpose… Mandy: If you’re trying to call me a ball-busting bitch, just fucking say it to my face. Casey: Scream, start crying, throw the nutcracker against the wall, and say, “NOOOO! Not again! Why won’t he just leave me alone already?” Chris: Wait, were the mixed nuts uncracked? Because if so, this is very useful and considerate.

Personalized Advertising

These are third party technologies used for things like:

  • third party personalized ads
  • to limit how many times you see an ad
  • to understand usage via Google Analytics
  • to understand how you got to Etsy
  • to ensure that sellers understand their audience and can provide relevant ads

We do this with social media, marketing, and analytics partners (who may have their own information they’ve collected). Saying no will not stop you from seeing Etsy ads or impact Etsy’s own personalization technologies, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.
