What do we mean when we say online behavioural advertising/ interest-based advertising?
Online behavioural advertising or interest based-advertising is a way to serve the advertisements on a website when you visit them, making them more relevant according to your interests.
People who share a common interest are grouped together depending upon their browsing history and activities. According to your behaviour, you are served ads which match your shared interests. This way, advertising is made relevant and useful for you as a user to grab. Relevant ads are also delivered to you depending on the website content you are currently browsing. This is called ‘retargeting’.
