Cookies and marketing
Cookies can be used to identify your user behavior on the Internet and match you as a user to marketing audiences. The purpose of audience-targeted marketing is to show relevant ads to the user. The higher the relevance, the better experience for you as a user and more effective marketing for the sender. One way to succeed is to identify the behavior, search patterns and visitor history of users, via cookies. The identification is anonymous and tells the marketing platform that there is a user with a certain interest that fits in a specific target group. The purpose of the cookie is not to share sensitive personal data with third parties.
