In order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our website for you, we also use Google conversion tracking. Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer in accordance with section 4 if you have accessed our website via a Google ad.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the AdWords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this website.
Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained by means of conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The AdWords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this, e.g. via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies.
