Ads too frequent

I’m seeing the same ad from KitKat India on every page and every fifth slide when looking through pictures. It’s really annoying and way too frequent. Started happening today.

Hi Xalbox,

Please keep in mind that IMDb is a free service: our advertisers help us to continue providing you with great movie information, and thanks to them we can keep offering our popular service for free and continually improve our site with new content and features.

We realize that some of these advertising methods may be more intrusive or require more user interaction than regular banner ads, so we constantly work together with our advertisers to substantially limit the frequency of such ads and achieve a good balance between an effective promotional exposure and maintaining great site usability.

If you're receiving the same ad, and selected the option "Do Not Personalize Ads from Amazon for this Internet Browser" on Amazon Advertising Preferences, this preference would opt you out from our site storing the information whether or not you had seen the same ad. You can update your preference to "Personalize Ads from Amazon" and select "Submit".  In addition, cookie and ad blocking plug-ins on your browser can interfere with the frequency capping for ads, so we recommend disable ad blockers when on IMDb.
