5.     Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

 

This website uses the online advertising programme "Google AdWords" and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Should you visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that you clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page. Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an Adwords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted into conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not obtain any information which can be used to identify you personally. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse by simply deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser settings. By doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

 

Legal basis for the use of Google AdWords is Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. f) GDPR. A legitimate interest of our company and the purpose of using Google AdWords is to promote our offerings and expertise to a broad audience.

Regardless of the playback of the embedded videos, every time this website is accessed, a connection to Google's DoubleClick network is established, which can trigger further data processing operations without our influence.
