Google Adwords and Google Remarketing
Launchmetrics uses the advertising program Google Adwords and the Google Remarketing technology. Both are managed by the company Google Inc. (“Google”).
To measure conversions with Google Adwords a conversion tracking cookie is installed when users click on a Launchmetrics Ad shown by Google. The conversion tracking cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to identify users. Google uses different cookies for each client of Google Adwords and does not consolidate the cookie information with other data. When clicking on one of our ads and accessing one of our pages with the tracking code (and the cookie has not expired) the conversion is recorded. With the help of the conversion tracking cookie, Launchmetrics can get the total number of conversions and analyze the effectiveness of our ads. You can find more information about Adwords here: https://support.google.com/adwords/topic/3121763?hl=en&ref_topic=3119071
When you click on one of our ads, Google remarketing cookie is installed. This cookie helps us to show ads on other pages that belong to the Google content network. Remarketing cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to obtain personal information.
