DoubleClick cookie is used by Google in the ads served on partner sites, such as websites displaying AdSense ads or included in Google certified ad networks. When users visit a partner's website and either view or click on an advertisement a cookie may be placed in the user's browser.

In an implementation of Google Analytics without User ID function, unique users ate counted each time the content on alvtieto.fi is used by another device and for each new visit. For example, a search on the mobile phone one day, a purchase on a laptop three days later and a customer service request on a tablet a month later are counted as three unique users in a standard implementation of the Google Analytics - although all these events occur with the same online account. Even if you can gather data about these events and entities, one can not determine whether there are any relationships between them. The only thing you see is the independent data points.
When implementing User ID it is possible to identify related events and entities and connect these seemingly unrelated data points. The same search on a phone, the purchase of a laptop and re-engagement on a tablet, that previously looked like three unrelated events unrelated entities, can now be understood as three related events on related entities. This provides a context for your analysis and a holistic overview of your users and their behaviours. AlvTieto.fi enables the User-ID function.
With advertising features Google Analytics can activate features in Analytics, which is not standard in the common implementation. Advertising features include the following:
These are enabled on alvtieto.fi making it possible for Google Analytics to collect data on traffic through Google's advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, in addition to the data collected through a standard Google Analytics application.
