Google Analytics and Remarketing

Britannica has implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising (e.g., Remarketing). Using the Ads Settings, visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads. Users can also visit Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web. Britannica follows the Google AdWords Interest-Based Advertising Policy and its sensitive category restrictions. Britannica uses Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third-party vendors, including Google, may show our ads on sites across the Internet. Britannica and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone's past visits to our website and to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our site.
