b) Google AdWords conversion tracking

In order to compile statistics about the use of our website and to evaluate use for the purpose of optimising our website for you, we also use Google conversion tracking.

If the user visits certain pages on the website of the AdWords customer and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked on the advertisement and was redirected to this site.

Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the aid of conversion cookies is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers that have elected to use conversion tracking. AdWords customers learn about the total number of users who clicked on their advertisements and were redirected to a site furnished with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can refuse the placement of a cookie required for this purpose, such as by configuring your browser to generally deactivate the automatic placement of cookies.
