Google AdWords und Google Conversion-Tracking
This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online-advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
In context of Google Ads we are using the so called Conversion tracking. By clicking on an ad created by Google a cookie for conversion tracking is set. Cookies are small text files, your internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validation within 30 days and don't serve the personal identification of users. If a user visitis certain pages of the websites again within 30 days and the cookie hasn't expired, Google and us can see, that the user has clicked on this ad and has been sent to this page.
Each Google Ads-customer gets a different cookie. Cookies can't be traced via the website of ads-customers. The data gathered with the help of conversion-cookies help to create conversion statistics for ad-customers who decided in favor of conversion-tracking. Customers get to know the total number of users who have clicked onto an ad and have been transferred to a page, furnished with a conversion tracking tag. They don't get information to identify users personally. If you don't want to take part in tracking, you can object to this by deactivating the cookie of Google Conversion-Trakcing via your user-settings in your internet-browser. You're subsequently are not going to be part of the Conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "Conversion Cookies" is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The webhost has a vested interest in the analysis of user behavior to optimize the promotional offer as well as existing ads.
You can set your browser in order to get notified over the placing of cookies and only allow cookies under certain circumstances, object to the consent to cookies in certain cases or generally as well as to activate the automated deletion of cookies when closing the browser. By deactivating cookies your website's functionality can get affected.
