Google deploys cookies in order to individually customize advertising in Google products such as the Google search engine. With the help of such cookies Google, for example, captures your latest search queries, your previous interactions with a company’s advertising or the search results of your visits to the website of an advertiser. Google also uses conversion cookies, which mainly serve to enable the advertiser to determine how many users who click on its website actually purchase its products. Google does not use conversion cookies to target interest-related advertising and they are only stored for a specific timeframe. These cookies are generally placed in the domain googleadservices.com. Data from conversion cookies are also, in certain circumstances, used in connection with your Google account, in order to link conversion results for your various devices. However, only anonymous data generated by these cookies is passed on to the advertiser.
Some of the Google cookies can also be used to measure conversion results. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies can be used for this purpose.
