This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Ireland ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your device for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser places on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the users. When a user visits certain pages of this website before expiry of the cookie, Google and we can identify that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a unique cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information collected using the conversion cookie serve to create conversion statistics to advertisers who are using conversion tracking. Customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and who were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they are not given any information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your web browser under User Preferences. You will then be excluded from the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored pursuant to Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR.
