​ Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This feature makes it possible to link target audiences for promotional marketing created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross- device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This allows Google to display advertisements based on your personal interests and your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. your mobile phone), on other devices (e.g. tablet or computer). Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google Account for this purpose. This way, any device that signs in to your Google Account can use the same personalized promotional messaging. To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google- authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/ .
