Use of Google Remarketing and DoubleClick
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. This makes it possible to present interest-based advertising to website visitors within the Google advertising network. For this purpose, a so-called "cookie" is stored on the visitor's computer. The string it contains is used to recognize a visitor when they visit websites that are part of the Google advertising network. There, the visitor may be shown advertising that relates to content that was previously accessed on websites that use Google Remarketing.
For this purpose, Google uses the so-called “DoubleClick” cookie, among other things. This is the same cookie that is used on websites that run advertising programs from the Google subsidiary DoubleClick. No third party advertising is placed on our website. The DoubleClick cookie is only used for the remarketing function.
