Google Analytics for Remarketing
The Google Analytics tracking code implemented on this site has been enhanced with Remarketing for Google Display Advertising, a service that analyses user behavior across the Google Display Network. With the help of this service, various cookies (e.g. the Google AdWords cookie) document your past visits to other sites whose providers have also joined the Google Display Network. Our AdWords ads use these analytical data in connection with search queries on Google Network sites, so that they may be more targeted, optimized, and promoted through ad settings. By analyzing cookies from other providers (e.g. Google AdWords cookies) we can better tailor our online campaigns to our visitors and their interests. In particular, Google will use this information to provide and display advertising features, such as remarketing, generating reports on displayed ads, or creating Google Analytics demographic and interest reports. Google will also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
This website uses the following Google AdWords features:
• re-advertising (remarketing)
• interest categories and categorization by demographic characteristics (e.g., age, gender)
• similar audiences
• other types of interest-based advertising
We use these Google Adwords features to redirect visitors to this site from third-party websites or Internet users with specific interest profiles based on their internet usage. We do not collect personally identifiable information with our cookies, remarketing lists, or other anonymous IDs.
If you do not want this, you can disable it through the Ads Preferences Manager or download the browser plugin available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
