Additionally, you may prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP- address) and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

(2) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

To statistically record the use of our website and for the purpose of optimizing our website, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Here, Google Adwords will set a cookie (see item 8) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can see that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked by using the Adwords customer ‘s websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have chosen Conversion Tracking. Adwords customers are informed of the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that can personally identify the user. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can deny the required settings of the cookie- for example by the browser settings that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies.
