Tracking Options

The Network Advertising Initiative offers a central site where you can opt-out of certain kinds of tracking or ad targeting by its members. 

The Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) provides a consumer opt-out page for the companies participating in their Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising.

Some leading companies provide their own opt-out mechanisms for their registered users.  For example, at these links you can control your opt-outs for Google, for Microsoft, and for Yahoo!.
