    Google Ads and Conversion Tracking

    Our website uses the service Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords), a product of Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 Ireland ("Google"). Google Ads enables us to advertise our attractive offers on external websites using advertising media (so-called Google Ads). This enables us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". We use ad server cookies for this purpose, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google advertisement, Google Ads stores a cookie on your terminal device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values. These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages on an ad customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through the websites of ads customers.

    We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to 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 users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to find out and store your IP address. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can easily delete or deactivate the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
