For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analyzed, e.g. Which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to show the user on other pages advertisements that correspond to the interests of the user even after visiting our website For this purpose, Google stores anonymous information in a cookie in the browsers of users who visit our site or certain Google services or websites in the Google display network.
