Google remarketing and Google advertising
Most content on the Internet - from the latest political news to up-to-the-minute sports scores and stock quotes - is free to consumers. Why? Because of effective Internet advertising.
What makes Internet advertising effective is the use of technologies that allow advertising networks, analytics firms, websites, and others to make inferences about consumer tastes and provide relevant content. Because of the seemingly complex nature of these technologies, many users have become concerned about their online privacy.
When you browse our website we use and have implemented the “Google remarketing” tool, and as part of this we allow Google to collect data, in the form of “cookies” about your visit to our website for the purpose of using this information and being able to display relevant advertisements and other information on the Google network and other Google sources such as, but not limited to, the Gmail service. We do not provide Google with any of your personal information other than the above.
Third party vendors, including Google, show our ads on sites on the internet.
Cabmania® takes appropriate measures to safeguard the information it holds from unauthorised access or improper use. Our database is stored in a secure, password protected location. Only users authorised by Cabmania® are allowed access to this data.
