Advertising Cookie

DoubleClick ID Cookie

  • This allows us to identify a browser, so we can carry out tasks such as Conversions Tracking, Remarketing and other cookie based targeting such as Frequency Capping, Audience Segmentation, sequentially rotating creative. When a user is served/clicks one of our ads, or visits a Floodlight Activity tag then we will attempt to set the DoubleClick ID Cookie if there is not one present in the browser already (should the browser accept cookies). We do allow users to opt-out of this advertising cookie, and it's important to give users this choice.

  • [Estimate our audience size and usage pattern.]

  • [Store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our site and to provide you with offers that are targeted at your individual interests.]

  • [Speed up your searches.]

  • [Recognise you when you return to our site.]

  • [Allow you to use our site in a way that makes your browsing experience more convenient, for example, by allowing you to store items in an electronic shopping basket between visits. If you register with us or complete our online forms, we will use cookies to remember your details during your current visit, and any future visits provided the cookie was not deleted in the interim.]

How to Opt-Out of the DoubleClick ID Cookies

  1. Users can visit https://www.google.co.uk/settings/ads and opt out.

  2. We also have an opt-out browser plugin on offer Here

  3. Industry awareness pages such as www.youronlinechoices.com or www.aboutads.info/choices/ allow for easy information management and opting out of advertising cookies across many vendors.

What happens when an user Opts-Out?

When a user opts-out, the DoubleClick ID Cookie has a value of OPT_OUT set. This means our servers cannot identify this browser, so we cannot perform any Conversions Tracking, Remarketing, or cookie based targeting.

Google itself provides information about the use of the DoubleClick cookie in the section ‘Advertising and Privacy’ in our Privacy Center at http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.
