This website also uses the Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer if you came to our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies persist for only 30 days and do not serve for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords-customer and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can detect that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this site. Every Adwords-customer gets a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Adwords-customers. Information gathered by means of the conversion cookies serve for creating conversion statistics for Adwords-customers who decided to use conversion tracking. Adwords-customers are informed about the total number of users that clicked on the ad and were forwarded to a site with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not get any information that could identify the user. If you do not want to participate in the tracking you can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies of the domain are blocked. Google’s data privacy on conversion tracking see can be found here. []
