Additional privacy concerns

Once you've customized your Google Chrome privacy settings, there are other privacy concerns you'll need to consider. For example, many websites partner with Google to bring you ads they think you might be interested in. These are known as targeted advertisements. To deliver targeted ads, Google needs to record information about your interests and demographics, such as your age and gender.

This information is based on the sites you visit, even if you're not signed in to a Google account. If you're not comfortable sharing this information, Google allows you to opt out of targeted ads.
