These tools allow us to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age, and interests of website visitors. This data is collected through visitors’ Google settings, and is not provided to us in a personally-identifiable format (this means we cannot identify what information is about you, and we will not try to figure it out). We will only use the data to adapt our website content to better reflect the needs of our visitors.
