`Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your browser by a blog or website you visit. It helps the blog to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings.
Cookies on this blog are used to count the number of visitors to a page, store information about visitors' preferences and to make the ads you see more relevant to you. 
Google, as a thrid party advertising service uses cookies to display ads that are relevant to the visitor. Here are the types of cookies that Google may use for the ads placed on this blog (Source:
"Our main advertising cookie is called 'id' and it is stored in browsers under the domain We use others with names such as _drt_, FLC, NID and exchange_uid.
Sometimes a cookie may be set on the domain of the site you are visiting. In the case of our DoubleClick product, a cookie called '__gads' may be set on the domain of the site you are visiting.
Google also uses a conversion cookie to help advertisers determine how many people who click on their ads end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to tell that you clicked the ad and proceeded to the advertiser site. They do not contain information that can identify you personally or link your browsing between advertiser sites, and they persist for a limited time. These cookies are set in the domain.
Some of our advertising products allow other companies to send their own cookies to your browser. For example, when you visit a page that uses DoubleClick, you may find that cookies are sent to your browser by Google and also by other parties. Each publisher and advertiser may work with various technology and service providers and each of these parties may set its own cookies, though each cookie can only be read by the domain that sets it. This means that several cookies may be sent to your browser by several companies in the time it takes a single web page to load. This is how most online advertising works."
How you can control the use of cookies
You can use the Ads Preferences Manager to manage the Google ads you see.
You can also manage the use of cookies from your web browser's settings. You have the option to block the use of cookies and you can also delete the ones that have already been sent to your computer.
