Based on your visit to our website, we use cross-device remarketing technologies from Google in order to display appropriate advertising for you on other websites.
How does remarketing work?
When you visit our website, it is possible that Google accesses recognition features for your browser or device (e.g., creating a so-called browser fingerprint), analyzes your IP address or stores a recognition feature in the form of a small text file (e.g. a third-party cookie) on your device. It is also possible that Google connects your visit to our websites with one or more of these recognition features and stores it in order to show you our ads on other websites.
The recognition features described above are designed as a pseudonym that Google may use to recognize your device on other websites. If you visit a website that participates in Google’s advertising display network (which means it displays advertising on behalf of Google), Google can recognize your device and your browser based on the aforementioned features.
We may also create remarketing tags for our websites. This means that we use keywords that contain information about the contents of the displayed page (such as product or service categories) on our websites. These keywords do not show any personal or sensitive information. Google receives and stores these keywords with the aforementioned recognition features. When you visit a website that is tagged with keywords for a certain product category, Google stores these keywords and assigns them to your recognition features.
This allows us to activate advertising on other websites that is aligned with the pages you visited on our websites. So if you are visiting another website that participates in Google’s advertising display network, Google can use the recognition features and the keywords stored with these features to identify whether any of our ads should be displayed to you and if so, which kind.
You can find more information about Google’s remarketing technologies at https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.
How does cross-device remarketing work?
If you log in to Google’s services with your own login data, using your own Google account(s), Google can connect the recognition features from different browsers and devices to each other. In other words, if Google has created a separate recognition feature for each laptop, pc, smartphone or tablet that you use, these recognition features can be assigned to each other as soon as you use (or have used) a Google service with your login data. This is how Google can specifically display our advertising campaigns beyond individual devices. However, Google will only do this if you have agreed to this data processing by Google in the past.
How can I opt out of the advertising?
You can opt out of this advertising format at any time. In order to do so, access the website https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922 and deactivate personalized advertising. Please note that these settings may not affect all devices and browsers. You can get more detailed information at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922.
