Advertisers use third-party cookies for behavioural advertising. Advertisers can track a user on their device, when jumping from website to website by adding tags to a page. This helps build a profile for the user based on behaviours and habits, so advertisements can be targeted to their interests.
With recent privacy laws going into effect, any users have more control over advertisers tracking their behaviours, however, information we may disclose to advertisers and advertising networks is non-personally identifiable.
