Advertising and conversion cookies
Advertising and conversion cookies are used to make on other sites outside our
offer advertising more relevant for you, e.g. based on your interests. Also,
this prevents that the same advertisements are displayed again to you. With
these cookies, we can also measure the effectiveness of our advertising
campaigns based on anonymous and pseudonymous user profiles and understand how
users interact with our advertisements and what actions the users have
implemented after interacting with the respective advertising material
- This website uses Google AdWords.
AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater
Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). As
part of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you
click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set.
Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the
user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are
not used for the personal identification of the users. If the user visits

- Google Adwords Conversion Tracking:
Within the Google AdWords service, we use the conversion tracking function
as well. A "conversion" is a specific action of the user (e.g.
ordering a newsletter, registering on the site), e.g. when you click on an
ad we have placed (on Google itself, so-called "Google Ads", or
on other sites within the Google Display Network). The information that is
collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion
statistics for AdWords customers. Each Google AdWords customer receives a
different cookie. The cookies can not be tracked through the websites of
advertisers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used
to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted
for 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 receive information that personally identifies users.
You can disable interest-based ads on Google as well as interest-based
Google ads on the web (within the Google Display Network) in your browser
by clicking the "Off" button under https://adssettings.google.com.
