Use of Google AdWords conversion

(1) We use the Google AdWords service to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising tools (so-called Google AdWords) on external web pages. We can determine how successful each advertising effort is in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. We are thus interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) These advertising materials are delivered through Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose we use Ad Server Cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters such as the display of advertisements or clicks by users. If you get to our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally.

(3) These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the web pages of AdWords customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in these promotional activities. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. We can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.

(4) Because of the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and use of the data collected by Google through this tool. We therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating AdWords conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or clicked on a message from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign that visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address.

(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in a variety of ways: (A) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular, suppressing third-party cookies will result in you not receiving third-party ads; (B) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking, by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, will be blocked,   https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies; (C) by disabling the interest-based advertisements of providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulatory campaign, via the link   https://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies; (D) by permanently disabling it in your browsers Firefox, InternetExplorer or Google Chrome under the link   https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this offer.

This is how Google can determine your previous visit to our website.
