USAGE OF GOOGLE ADWORDS CONVERSION TRACKING

We implement the “Google AdWords” online advertising program and the conversion tracking tool contained herein. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
Upon clicking on an advertisement placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is stored on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and, thus, do not serve the purpose of personal identification.
If you click on certain Internet pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, both Google and ourselves can see that you have clicked on the advertisement and have been rerouted to this page.
Each individual Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. This means that it is not possible to track cookies via AdWords client websites.
The information that is collected with the help of the conversion cookie serves to compile conversion statistics for those AdWords clients who have decided to implement conversion tracking. This provides information to the clients on the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and who have been rerouted to a page containing a conversion tracking tag. However, these clients to not receive any information that would enable the user to be personally identified.
If you do not wish to take part in these tracking activities, you can veto this usage and prevent the installation of the cookies by changing the respective setting in your browser software (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
