4.    Google AdWords

Our website uses Google AdWords. This is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States, which uses so-called conversion tracking. It allows both to serve ads in Google’s search engine results and on the Google Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-set keywords that will display an ad on Google’s search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. In the Google Network, ads are distributed on topical web pages using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords. If you click on a Google-served ad, or if you visit our website through a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be placed on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for the personal identification of the users. If you visit certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to our website, but not who you are. The conversion cookie also verifies that certain subpages have been visited on our website. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to generate anonymized conversion statistics for advertisers. We do not collect information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can prevent the setting of cookies at any time by setting your browser accordingly, as well as delete previously set cookies. In addition, you may opt out of Google interest-based advertising at any time by visiting Google’s pages at and making the settings you want. The storage of “conversion cookies” and the use of Google Adwords is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both our information / service / product offering and our advertising, e.g. by insertion interest-based advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the search engine Google.
