The integration of Google Remarketing thus allows us to create user-related advertising and to display interest-related advertising to the Internet user.
Google Remarketing sets a cookie on the visitor's device. With the setting of the cookie, Google is able to recognize the visitor to this website if he or she subsequently calls up websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website is accessed on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the Internet browser of the person concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the surfing behavior of the user, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-based advertising.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time the website is visited, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.
