The web server does not associate it with you as a person, but with your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website with Firefox, you will see that the website does not realise that you are the same person, because it is actually associating the information with the browser, not with the person.

- Analytic cookies: these collect information about the type of browsing that is being performed, the sections that are most used, products consulted, time zone, language, etc.
- Advertising cookies: these display advertising based on your browsing, your country of origin, language, etc.

DoubleClick uses cookie IDs to keep track of which ads have been shown in certain browsers. At the time of publishing an ad in a browser, you can use the cookie ID of that browser to check which ads have already been shown in that specific browser. This is how to avoid showing ads that the user has already seen. Similarly, cookie IDs allow DoubleClick to record conversions regarding ad requests, such as when a user views a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser’s website and make a purchase.
As an Internet user, at any time you can delete the information regarding your browsing habits, and the related profile that has generated the referred habits, accessing directly and free of charge: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/preferences?hl=es. If a user disables this feature, DoubleClick ‘s unique cookie ID in the user’s browser is overwritten with the “OPT_OUT” phase. Because a unique cookie ID no longer exists, the disabled cookie cannot be associated with a certain browser.
Can cookies be deleted?
Yes, they can. And not only can you delete them, you can also block them in general or for a specific domain.
To delete cookies from a website, go to your browser’s settings, find those associated with the domain in question, and delete them.
