Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

As part of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for the personal identification of the users.

If users visit certain pages on this site and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies can not be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate visit action evaluation statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by simply disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your Internet browser under User Preferences. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.
