Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google AdWords: The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After clicking on an advertisement displayed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device. Google AdWords cookies are only valid for 30 days and are not used for personal identification of users. Through the cookie, our company and Google are able to determine that you have clicked on an advertisement and been taken to our website.
Each Google AdWords client has a different cookie. The cookies cannot be traced via websites of AdWords clients. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords clients who use conversion tracking. AdWords clients find out how many users have clicked on their advertisement and been taken to websites with a conversion tracking tag. AdWords clients do not, however, receive any information that would enable a personal identification of users. If you do not want to take part in the tracking, you can refuse this use. To do this, the conversion cookie has to be deactivated in the browser’s user settings. You will also not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of “conversion cookies” is carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a justified interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise our web presence and where applicable also advertising.
Details about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
