Web tracking is one of the basic, commonly used technologies on the Web. This practice refers to the collecting of data when websites are accessed. Cookies, small text files, help identify a user. A profile of the user is created and can be used to display advertisements tailored to the user during visits to websites. The information sheet also describes opportunities and challenges of this method.

Information and ideas:
A more precise definition of personalized advertising is included in the “Big data practical example – Personalized online advertisements” information sheet in the “Big data” media package, which is available on the Siemens Stiftung Media Portal.
There are no other media directly related to this file.
