Read about the difference here: Personalized and non-personalized ads
David Gross uses personalized ads via Google AbMob and Google Adsense, except in the EEA (European Economic Area) and UK (also know as GDPR General Data Protection Regulation countries), and California, where David Gross uses non-personalized ads. In California, data processing is set to restricted on the Google Adsense and Google Admob side.
Google Admob and Google Adsense personalize ads based on factors such as:
Non-personalized ads are ads that are not based on a user's past behavior, and not based on demographic targeting or user list targeting. In this case, cookies and mobile ad identifiers are not used for ad targeting. Instead, these ads are targeted using contextual information, such as:
All of David Gross' apps are configured to never send the user's precise location to Google Admob or Google Adsense, although your coarse location may be inferred by Google Admob or Google Adsense based on your map viewing, IP address, or current app search queries.
No, in general, ads will not initialize and most Admob requests will be eliminated, except for "app measurement" requests. These app measurement requests are not supposed to be third-party in nature, rather they report directly back to Google. David Gross continually works toward eliminating app measurement and associated technologies if possible in his apps and websites, but due to possible intertangling in the AdMob and Adsense API (Application Programming Interface), it may not be feasible or guaranteed to have a perfectly clean app experience devoid of trackers if you purchase an ad-free or so-called "Premium" subscription.
In the case of personalized ads, Google and third parties may place and read cookies or tracking pixels on David Gross' users' browsers or use web beacons and advertising identifiers to collect information as a result of ad serving.
David Gross does not send or store your location data off to the server-side unless necessary (i.e. for setting up earthquake alerts, your coarse or precise location must be known and stored server-side, but not with a personal identifier, rather a notification token that cannot be linked to your identity). In those specific cases, an in-app pop-up will describe the express purpose and degree of the location sharing.
