Use of Google Adwords conversion tracking

Our website uses the online marketing program Google AdWords, including conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is a service operated by Google Inc.

These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that you have clicked on the ad and were forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a separate cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie only serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked on our ads and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information which could be used to personally identify users.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by choosing corresponding technical settings in your internet browser. This may, however, prevent you from making full use of all the functions of this website. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. You can also deactivate personalized advertising in Google’s advertising settings.
