(For the next part, I'll just be honest. I have no clue what most of this jargon means. I think it's a long, detailed, overly-wordy explanation just to say that I've turned on Google Analytics in a way that it will give me advanced demographics info.
You know, it'll tell me if it knows if you are a man or a woman. If you like parenting stuff or travel. That way I know if I should write about different things that interest you more. Pretty much every site does this.
Unfortunately, Google would like us to make all of our legal jargon air-tight in case you'd like to sue over the fact that I may or may not know that someone between the ages of 18 and 45 visited my site today. Or maybe you like sports and you are really peeved that I would use that to my advantage and start writing about sports.
I don't know. It's all a little weird to me. I think the jargon sounds scary to be perfectly honest, which is why I put this little disclaimer in here.
So to recap. Mostly no idea what the below Google stuff means, please don't sue me for knowing that you like cats or baseballs or trying new eateries, and understand that I'm only collecting the anonymous demographic information so I have something to put in my fancy-schmancy report to my clients.)
We currently have enabled an advanced version of Google Analytics that enables Google to collect data about our website's traffic via Google Advertising Cookies and anonymous identifiers in addition to the data collected on the standard version of Google Analytics.
These advanced Google Analytics Advertising Features include:
- Remarketing with Google Analytics
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting
- DoubleClick Platform integrations
- Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
We do not and will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information unless we have robust notice of, and the user's prior affirmative consent to, that merger.
At this time, our site solely uses this information to report anonymous demographics information to prospective clients. Our site and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as Google Analytics cookies) or other firs-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together.
You can opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features being used on this site by clicking HERE to find Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs.
