Use of cookies

We use cookies for purposes of optimizing our website and in order to facilitate the use of various functions. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. These cookies, called session cookies, are erased from your computer after your browser session has ended.


Use of Google AdWords conversion tracking

Our website uses the online marketing program “Google AdWords”, including conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is a service operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a separate cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to determine the total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information which could be used to personally identify users. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR based on our justified interest in being able to effectively and efficiently implement targeted marketing and analysis measures.

You have the right to veto the processing of your personal data according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR for reasons relating to your personal situation by contacting us. You can prevent the storage of cookies by choosing corresponding technical settings in your internet browser. We would, however, like to point out that this may prevent you from making full use of all the functions of this website. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. You can also deactivate personalised advertising in Google’s advertising settings. You can find an introduction to this at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922. You can also deactivate the use of cookies by third parties by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and following the opt-out instructions.
