Google ads

We use the online advertising programme "Google Ads" on our website as well as related conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). If you click on any advertisements placed by Google a cookie will be placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have a limited validity of 30 days but do not contain any information by which the user could be personally identified because there is an anonymisation of the IP address. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will detect that you have clicked on the advertisement and were directed to this page. Every Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, there is no possibility for cookies being able to be tracked from the websites of Google Ads customers. Information obtained with the help of conversion cookies serves to provide conversion statistics. Thereby, we are able to see the total number of visitors who have clicked on our advertisement and who have been redirected to the page with a conversion tracking tag. We do not, however, receive any information by which the user could be personally identified. 

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block this at any time if you deactivate the cookies of Google conversion tracking on your internet browser under the user set-up. Note however that not all functions of the website may be available if these cookies are disabled. You will also not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. In addition, you can deactivate the settings for advertising with Google for your personal advertising. You will find information on this under Further, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third parties in that you call-up the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative under and implement the opt-out information contained therein.
