This data is simple demographic information and ADS will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless we have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to that merger.
We also encourage you to point users to Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web.
