We are conducting a study where Google matches customer information tied to our in-store transaction data with Google Ads user information – this is known as Google Store Sales Direct.

Google uses cookies, like the PREF cookie, to help personalize ads on Google properties, like Google Search, particularly when you aren’t signed in to a Google account. It does this by setting a unique user ID. We also use one or more cookies for advertising we serve across the web.

One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. Another is stored in google.com and is called ANID. We use other cookies with names such as DSID, FLC, AID, TAID, and exchange_uid. Other Google properties, like YouTube, may also use these cookies to show you more relevant ads.

We also use cookies for advertising we serve outside of Google. The main advertising cookie is called ‘id’ and it is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. Google uses others with names such as _drt_, FLC, NID and exchange_uid.

DoubleClick uses cookies to improve advertising. Some common uses are to target advertising based on what’s relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen. Read more here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/types

If you opt out of ad personalisation using Google’s Ads Settings, you will no longer receive personalised advertising from Google but you will still be used for performance reporting. Read more here: https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous?sig=ACi0TCiK91JeIjpChkC20plCgm6U3-RQAeBWa_B2eYaQTgMgXh5MHsAVSqum22RNehggDv18BNhcSc_1sR-vCFmO3L4_7W2H0g&hl=en

We use Bing Ads to promote Boots.com online. To more effectively market our products and services, we use a cookie to record your transaction.

A UET tag records what customers do on the website, then Bing Ads starts collecting that data which allows website administrators to create conversion goals to track conversions or target audiences using remarketing lists. UET is a prerequisite for conversion tracking and remarketing in paid search.

UET collects the following data and Bing Ads retains it for 180 days. UET also collects the IP address and the Microsoft cookie (with an expiration date of 13 months). This cookie contains a GUID assigned to the user’s browser, and/or an ID assigned to a user as long as it authenticated through their Microsoft account. In general, the cookie in the relevant domain and IP address are always passed with every http request and not just via UET. Bing Ads doesn't resell this data to third parties or share it with other advertisers. To read more, visit https://help.bingads.microsoft.com/#apex/3/en/53056/1

ti: Universal Event Tracking (UET) is a way for advertisers to report user activity on their websites to Bing Ads. They do this by installing one site-wide tag. UET is a prerequisite for advertisers to track conversions or showing customers ads after they've left a website without buying anything.
ver: identifies the version of UET being used
mid: Once the UET tag is installed by the advertiser across their website, this cookie reports user activity on the advertiser website to Bing Ads.
evt: This cookie shows the difference between the basic effort of a page loading and a customer performing an action on the page. The advertiser chooses what actions the customer performs ('custom events') that they are told about.
p: Identifies webpage.
r: Identifies referrer URL.
ec, ea, ev, el: These are needed if advertiser chooses to use custom events for tracking conversion or showing customers ads after they've left a website without buying anything.
gv: Needed if advertiser chooses to track variable revenue.
gc: Needed if advertiser chooses to track variable revenue.
ifm: Indicates if the tag comes from within an iFrame. An iFrame acts as a container on a webpage which can display other web pages.
rn: Handles browser cache.
tl: Used to construct digital signature so that we can detect fraud
kw: Identifies keyword that successfully found the web page
lt: Identifies page load time
lg: Identifies browser language setting
sc: Identifies screen color depth of user
sh: Identifies screen height of user
sw: Identifies screen width of user
pi: Identifies digital signature of user - one way hash of tl, lt, lg, sc, sh, sw.
sid: Session ID, which is unique per domain and is used to improve the accuracy of conversion tracking. UET sets a first-party cookie on a site’s domain for this parameter.



msclkid, _uetmsclkid: Ad click information, generated at ad click time and attached to the landing page URL when auto-tagging of Microsoft Click ID is enabled. The Microsoft Click ID has 1N added to the end if cookies are blocked by the browser and the msclkid parameter is in the landing page URL.

Google uses cookies, like the PREF cookie, to help personalize ads on Google properties, like Google Search, particularly when you aren’t signed in to a Google account. It does this by setting a unique user ID. We also use one or more cookies for advertising we serve across the web.

One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named 'IDE' and is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. Another is stored in google.com and is called ANID. We use other cookies with names such as DSID, FLC, AID, TAID, and exhange_uid. Other Google properties, like YouTube, may also use these cookies to show you more relevant ads.
By default, gtag.js has automatic cookie domain configuration enabled. When enabled, automatic cookie domain configuration sets the _ga cookie to the highest level domain it can.

DoubleClick uses cookies to improve advertising. Some common applications are to target advertising based on what's relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen. Read more here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/types

If you opt out of ads personalization using Google's Ads Settings, they will no longer receive personalized advertising from Google but will still be used for performance reporting. Read more here:
