So annoying, and I feel intrusive to my customers.

I know you have to have this to track your conversions...but is there any way around showing it?

Making it in "white" text (assuming white background) to make it "dissapear"? How does it display on your site's confirmation page?

No, I think you are required to display that, so that your customer can click on it and read Google's privacy statement regarding their transaction.

Yep, that's definitely my impression of things as well. No obfuscation permitted, it'd violate their TOS you've agreed to.

It only displays to those that have clicked on a Google ad and then reached your "conversion" page - I'm not seeing how that is so intrusive for the user.

They were Google's "customer" 1st before being your visitor...
