Data Protection Notice – Google AdWords Remarketing
Data Protection Notice – Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
This website also employs Google’s conversion tracking technology. This is another area in which Google AdWords will store a cookie on your computer if you arrived on our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies will expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification purposes. If you access certain sections of our website and the cookie on your computer has not yet expired, we will be able to determine that you were directed to those sections after clicking on a particular advertisement. Every AdWords customer receives a different cookie, which means that cookies cannot be tracked through these customers’ websites. The information collected with the help of conversion cookies enables us to generate conversion statistics. As a result, we can determine the total number of users who have clicked on our advertisements and were thus directed to a site equipped with a conversion tracking tag. We do not, however, receive any information that could be used to identify individual users. If you wish to opt out of the tracking process, you can decline the necessary cookie (such as by deactivating the automatic generation of cookies in your browser’s settings). You can also deactivate conversion tracking cookies by instructing your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com“. Google’s own notice on its data protection efforts in connection with conversion tracking is available here.
