We use these statistics to see the total number of users who have clicked on the Google-linked ad and have viewed a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not obtain any information that makes it possible to personally identify users. We cannot match the obtained data to specific users.
In addition to conversion tracking, we also use the following functions: Remarketing, Targeting groups with common interests, Customized target audience with common interests, Ready-to-buy target audience, Related target audience, Demographic and geographic targeting
