Use of Google AdWords conversion tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” on our website and, in this context, conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click on an advertisement placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the advertisement and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Accordingly, there is no possibility of cookies being tracked through the websites of AdWords customers.
The information that is collected with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on one of our advertisements and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information that personally identifies users. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR due to the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising.
You have the right to object to this processing of personal data relating to you based on Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. To this end, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate technical settings in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Furthermore, you can disable advertising that is personalized for you in Google’s advertising settings. You can find instructions on how to do this at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996?hl=en
