This site hosts cookies from advertisers from the Google ADSense circuit to keep track of the user's visits to the sites where they offer their services.
Cookies of this type, such as DoubleClick cookies, are sent from the site itself or from third party domains linked to Google services.
This site uses Google's remarketing tool ADSense, an interest-based advertising function that allows you to serve personalised ads based on users' visits to this site.
This tool allows you to reach users even after they have visited the site, while they are browsing other websites, by showing them a message or commercial communication that encourages them to return to the site.
The remarketing "tags" inserted in the site's programming code intervene on the cookies and make it possible to personalise the advertisements and store information, for example regarding the interests expressed or the actions taken while browsing. This information is recorded in remarketing lists, i.e. a set of cookies of users who have visited the site, stored by Google.
