Google Adsense is used to show you the most appropriate advertisement for your profile. Google adsense use third-party cookie and collects data on your behaviour on the web and during your visit. These data are used and collected by google adsense and his affiliated partner. These data will not be sold or used to contact you. For more informations, you can check the following websites:
The cookie ID in each DoubleClick cookie is essential to these applications. For example, DoubleClick uses cookie IDs to keep a log of which ads show to which browsers. When it’s time to serve an ad to a browser, DoubleClick can use the browser’s cookie ID to check which DoubleClick ads have already been delivered to that particular browser. That’s how DoubleClick avoids showing ads the user has already seen. In the same way, cookie IDs allow DoubleClick to log conversions related to ad requests—such as when a user views a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser’s website and make a purchase. DoubleClick cookies contain no personally identifiable information. With the user’s and publisher’s permission, information associated with the DoubleClick cookie may be added to the user’s Google Account. If a signed out user opts out using the Ads Settings, the unique DoubleClick cookie ID on the user’s browser is overwritten with the phrase “OPT_OUT” and is not used for ads personalization. Because there is no longer a unique cookie ID, the opt-out cookie cannot be associated with a particular browser.
If a signed in user opts out using the Ads Settings, the unique DoubleClick cookie ID on the user’s browser will remain. However, the DoubleClick cookie ID is not used for ads personalization while signed in.

When does DoubleClick send cookies to a browser?
DoubleClick sends a cookie to the browser after any impression, click, or other activity that results in a call to the DoubleClick server. If the browser accepts the cookie, the cookie is stored on the browser.
Most commonly, DoubleClick sends a cookie to the browser when a user visits a page that shows DoubleClick ads. Pages with DoubleClick ads include ad tags that instruct browsers to request ad content from the DoubleClick ad server. When the server delivers the ad content, it also sends a cookie. But a page doesn’t have to show DoubleClick ads for this to happen; it just needs to include DoubleClick ad tags, which might load a click tracker or impression pixel instead.
How to cancel cookies?
You can delete or disable cookies from the settings of your browser. Below you will find some useful link, otherwise ask to the support assistance of your browser.
