Analysis of usage data & interest-related information (retargeting) on Mercedes-Benz websites
We use Adobe Analytics products to identify visitor preferences and particularly popular areas of our internet presence.

To enable us to show you content relevant to your needs and interests on Mercedes-Benz websites from Daimler AG, Mercedes-Benz Bank, Mercedes-Benz Accessories, and from authorized sales and service partners (collectively referred to as ‘Mercedes Benz websites’ below), we also employ retargeting technology. This uses cookies to store details of your interest in our products and services. These cookies are read when you visit a Mercedes-Benz website. The process is anonymized, i.e. you cannot be identified through retargeting.

If you do not wish Daimler to collect, store, and analyze statistical data related to your visit, or you do not want to receive information relevant to your interests on Mercedes Benz websites you may object to the future use of your data at any time (opt-out).
