Such a setting of the internet browser also prevents Google from setting a conversion cookie on the affected person's system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes. Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to Google's interest-based advertising.
