The Google Remarketing feature allows us to reach users who have previously visited our website.

AdWords also determines what common interests there are and shared characteristics among users of our website based on user behavior on websites in the Google Display Network in the last 30 days and contextual search engine data. Based on this information, AdWords then finds new prospective customers to market to whose interests and characteristics are similar to those of users of our website. Target-audience-specific remarketing occurs through use of cookies in combination, such as Google Analytics cookies and Google DoubleClick cookies, in the browsers of the website users.

If you wish to opt out of tracking, you can block its use by preventing the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser (disable option). or by following the link below and installing the plug-in provided there:
