Advertisers may publish ads that are tailored to the User's hobbies and interests, taking into consideration non-personal data concerning the activity of the User, such as the pages viewed by the latter or any activity on other AdSense partner sites.
An advertiser may also publish ads based on a User's previous activity on its own web site. The DoubleClick DART cookie is used by Google to set the content of the ads that are sent out to the web sites of publishers displaying AdSense ads.
When an Internet user displays or clicks on an ad featuring on the web site of an AdSense publisher, a cookie may be sent to his browser. The data collected by the cookies is used to help AdSense publishers to improve the way in which they manage and broadcast ads on their web sites as well as over the entire Internet network.
