 Google Analytics Advertising Features

We use Google Analytics Advertising Features. Please keep in mind that once Google Analytics Advertising Features are enabled Google Analytics will collect from Google Ads some extra information than what we already mentioned before about Google Analytics cookies. We enable this with the purpose of displaying better ads to the right people.

  What Google Analytics Advertising Features we have implemented:

  • Creating Remarketing Audiences based on specific behavior, demographic, and interest data to share those with Google Ads;
  • Using demographic and interest data in our Analytics reports;
  • Creating segments based on demographic and interest data;
  • Reporting about Google Display Network Impression;
  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.

 How we and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as Google advertising cookies) or other third-party identifiers together:

  • Cookies are small blocks of data created by a web server while a user is browsing a website and placed on the user’s computer or other device by the user’s web browser. It helps the website you visit to remember information about your visit, which will make the next visit easier and the site more useful. Other technologies, including unique identifiers used to identify a browser, app or device, pixels, and local storage, can also be used for these purposes. Cookies and those other technologies can be used for the purposes described here:
    • Functionality – allow the access to features that are fundamental to the website;
    • Security – used for the authentication of users, preventing fraudulent or protecting you while interacting with the website;
    • Analytics – help us collect data that allows us to understand your interactions with our website. These insights allow us to both improve content and build better features that enhance your experience;
    • Advertising – We partnered with Google Search Ads(ads shown on Google search result page when entering a specific search term) and Google Display Network(ads shown on sites and apps that partnered with Google or Google properties). Cookies and other technologies used help collect data that allows us to understand how you interact with our website. These way we can create better content to improve your experience with website in general and ads in particular;

You can always opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features by using one of the following methods:

  • Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on – Also please take into consideration this browser ad-on for opting-out of personalized ads that is designed to be compatible with Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge. You can find it here https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/

Remarketing

   We are using remarketing. That means that once you visit our website to see a product review you may see in the future, based on the data collected by cookies,  ads for that product on Google Search result page, other Google services or other sites and apps. Please take into consideration the following:

  • How we use our data to advertise online
    • We collect information about your activity on our website. We may use the search terms you used to bid on those keywords if you are going to search for them again in the future, meaning you may see another ad on Google search result page for our product review. Also, after you visit our website for a product review you may see an ad for that product review on Google display network, consisting of Google services and more than 2 millions partners apps/sites. This is mainly possible with the help of cookies technology.
    • In our remarketing activity we also use scroll depth analyses to see how far you have scrolled our product review pages so we can optimize our marketing communication through remarketing ads on Google Search or their site/apps partners  for display advertising.
    • We use data about the ads you interact with, including our remarketing campaigns, to understand the performance of those ads. The tools we use are mainly Google Analytics and Google ads.
    • With the help of analytics tools, like Google Analytics or online advertising platforms, like Google Ads we analyze statistics regarding the number of users seeing an impression of the ad and the actions taken after.
  • How third-party vendors, including Google, show our ads on sites across the Internet.

             We use Google Ads for remarketing campaigns and our ads can appear on different places across the web:

             – On Google Search. Remarketing ads can appear above or below search results on Google Search

             – On Google Display Network. Remarketing ads can appear on a collection of websites(Google properties and more than 2 millions partners) and apps when you are surfing the internet.

  • How third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies and/or device identifiers to serve ads based on your past visits to our website. 
    • Cookies help us make remarketing and advertising in general more effective. Without the use of cookies, it would be very difficult for us to reach our audiences, to know how many ads were shown or how many of them were clicked.
    • We are using Google Ads and Google Analytics to manage our remarketing campaigns. By visiting a page or seeing an ad that uses one of these products, either on Google services or on other sites and apps, various cookies may be sent to your browser. These cookies may be sent from different domains, including google.com or our own domain.
    • When it comes to mobile applications, cookies technology is not available so instead, Google may use technologies that perform similar functions to serve ads.
    • Working with Google for remarketing, we are given the option to target our ads to people who visited our website before. For it to work Google has to read a cookie that is already in your browser or place a cookie in your browser when you visit our website. When you visit another website that may have nothing to do with our website but partnered  with Google for display advertising, you might see one of our ads for product review. It is due to the fact that  your browser sends Google the same cookie. Your visit to our website may also be used by Google to show you personalized ads when you search again on Google for the same/similar product to the ones we review on our website.
  • Ways in which you can opt out of Google’s use of cookies or device identifiers
