4.6. Google Adwords
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you arrive at our website via an advertisement delivered by Google, a cookie will be placed on your computer by Google Adwords. The cookie will be used for conversion tracking when a user clicks on an advertisement delivered by Google. These cookies cease to be valid after 30 days and cannot be used to personally identify you. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that you, as a user, have clicked on one of our advertisements placed with Google and have been forwarded to our page. Google uses the information obtained using the cookies to compile visitor statistics for our website. From these statistics, we learn the total number of users that have clicked on our advertisement and also which pages on our website have then been visited by the user in question. We, and other parties advertising via “Google Adwords”, do not receive any information which can be used to personally identify users however. You can prevent cookies from being installed with an appropriate setting in your browser, for example the browser setting that disables the placement of cookies in general or only blocks cookies from the “googleadservices.com” domain in particular.

Each time the “Google Maps” component is called, Google places a cookie to process user settings and data when the page on which the “Google Maps” component is integrated is displayed. This cookie is generally not deleted when the browser is closed. Instead, it will expire after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually beforehand. If you object to the processing of your data in this way, you have the option of disabling the “Google Maps” service and preventing data from being transmitted to Google in this way. To do this, you will need to disable the Java script function in your browser.
