In addition, we have implemented a Google Advertising feature 'Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting' . This enables Google Analytics to collect data via Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation. This will help us to better understand our users and help us provide more relevant information to them. We will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature without prior consent from the site's users. You can opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features by using this tool: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
