Privacy statement for Google AdWords / Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising programme “Google AdWords” and AdWords conversion tracking. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on one of the ads delivered by Google. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are able to detect that the user has clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.

The customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been redirected to a page with conversion tracking. However, the customers do not receive any information which could be used to personally identify users. Users who do not want to take part in tracking can easily deactivate the cookie for Google conversion tracking via their Internet browser under user settings.
