Retargeting on

Advertising based on previous internet actions as tailored to the individual customer via “retargeting”.

This website uses so-called “retargeting-tags”. “Retargeting-tags” are JavaScript-elements that are embedded in the source code of the website. If a user visits a page belonging to the website that contains a retargeting-tag, a provider of online advertising (e.g. Google) sets a cookie on the computer of the user and assigns it to an appropriate retargeting target group list. This cookie further helps to advertise targeted content on other websites. Studies show that targeted advertising are experienced as more valuable by the user than ads that do not have any relation to previous websites or interests of the user.
