Google Remarketing

Our website uses Google’s remarketing advertising service to show our ads on websites across the Internet. With remarketing, you may see ads for products of ours that you have previously looked at. For example, suppose you visit a website that sells computers, but you do not buy a computer on your first visit to that website. The website’s owner might encourage you to revisit his site and buy a computer by showing you his ads on other websites you visit. For this to happen, Google will read a cookie that is already in your browser. You can opt out of Google’s remarketing at this link: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en
