Remarketing - Why am I seeing ads by Google for Sprout Accelerator?

Our website uses a remarketing advertising service. Our remarketing service is provided by Google and other companies that show our ads on websites across the Internet. With remarketing, you may see ads based on webpages you have looked at.

We use remarketing for similar purposes so you may see advertisements for our services as you search the Internet. For this to happen, Google, or other remarketing providers will read a cookie that is already in your browser, or they place a cookie in your browser when you visit our site or other sites using remarketing. (This can only happen if your browser is set to let it happen).

When you visit another website that works with Google, or other providers of remarketing advertising, you may see ads for products/services you previously viewed although they may have nothing to do with the website you are seeing the ads on. This happens because your browser is sending Google the same cookie and encouraging you to revisit the website you previously visited.

You can opt out of Google's use of cookies or device identifiers by visiting "Google's Ads Settings". Alternatively, you can opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies by visiting the "Network Advertising Initiative" opt-out page."

Leave your footprints on the future health of the planet and its people.

Are you up for the challenge?
