GOOGLE ANALYTICS – DISPLAY ADEVRTISING SPECIFIC PROVISIONS

MARGUERITTE ONLINE STORE has implemented Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. This means:

Data is used from Google's Interest-based advertising or 3rd-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests) with Google Analytics. This may include:

-         Demographics

  • Overview (overview of traffic by age and gender)
  • Age (traffic by age ranges)
  • Gender (traffic by gender)

-         Interests

  • Overview (overview of traffic by affinity and other categories)
  • Affinity Categories (behavior by affinity categories)
  • In-Market Categories (behavior by in-market categories)
  • Other Categories (behavior by other interest categories)

These reports may allow MARGUERITTE ONLINE STORE to see not only how many times a user visited over a date range, but also who those users are, and how their behavior varies by attribute (e.g., male vs. female).

This data is also available in custom reports, and it can be used as the basis for segmentation, to evaluate how the users' behavior varies by demographics and interests (for example, do women interested in Apparel convert more frequently or read specific types of content more than females who are interested in Shopping).

If you do not agree with the data collected for Demographics and Interest reporting:

Via the Ads Settings, you can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads.
