Use of Google Remarketing
Our websites use Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with Google AdWords functions and Google DoubleClick. This is provided by Google Inc.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function allows the advertising target groups created by Google Analytics Remarketing to link Google-AdWords functions and Google-DoubleClick. In this way, relevant, personalised advertisements which have been adapted to you depending on the way you use and surf on an end device (e.g. smartphone) are also displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given permission, Google will link your web and application browser history with your Google account for this purpose. This way, the same personalised advertisements will be activated on any end device when you log in with your Google account.
As a way of supporting this feature, Google Analytics registers the Google-authorised IDs of users who are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for cross-platform advertising.
You can permanently decline cross-device remarking/targeting by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
