Google Ad Personalisation

Google cookies are used for ads personalization

If ad personalisation is turned on, Google will use your information to make your ads more useful for you. For example, a website that sells mountain bikes might use Google’s ad services. After you visit that site, you could see an ad for mountain bikes on a different site that shows ads served by Google.

If ad personalisation is off, Google will not collect or use your information to create an ad profile or personalise the ads that Google shows to you. You will still see ads, but they may not be as useful. Ads may still be based on the topic of the website or app that you’re looking at, your current search terms or on your general location, but not on your interests, search history or browsing history. Your information can still be used for the other purposes mentioned above, such as to measure the effectiveness of advertising and protect against fraud and abuse.

When you interact with a website or app that uses Google services, you may be asked to choose whether you want to see personalised ads from ad providers, including Google. Regardless of your choice, Google will not personalise the ads that you see if your ad personalisation setting is off or your account is ineligible for personalised ads.

You can see and control what information google use to show you ads by visiting your ad settings.
