Google AdWords

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have accessed our website via an advert published by Google, a cookie is set on your computer by Google Adwords. The cookie for conversion tracking is set if a user clicks on an advert published by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google recognise that the user has clicked the advert and was transferred to this page. Every Google AdWords customer is given a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have decided on conversion tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users, who have clicked their adverts and were transferred to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. They do not however receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
If you do not wish to take part in the tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - such as via browser setting, which generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain “” are blocked.

Please bear in mind that you may not delete the opt-out cookies if you do not want any recording of measuring data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must reset the respective opt-out cookie.
