Why do I need personalized ads
Consumers like to receive personalized ads for various reasons. Personalized ads are useful because they take into account your specific interests. They are more likely to help you discover new products and services that are relevant to you and your interests. Getting personalized ads improves access to the products, services, and features that are most relevant to you. However, you won't see the same ads over and over again, because the number of times the same individual ad is displayed is limited. If you opt out of personalized ads, you lose these benefits.
Information retention period
we only store your data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The length of time for storing personal data depends on the purpose for which such data was collected, and / or on the requirements of current legislation and the need to establish, exercise or protect our legal rights.
