In this case Google Adwords sets a cookie in your computer ("conversion cookie“) if you access our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies cease to be valid alter 30 days and are not used for the purpose of personal identification. If you visit certain web pages of our company and the cookie has not yet expired, both we and Google can see that someone has clicked on the advertisement and was therefore directed to our website. Every AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the aid of the conversion cookie is used to produce conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers find out about the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were directed to a website marked with a conversion tracking tag. However, these AdWords customers do not receive any information through which they can personally identify users. If you do not want to take part in the tracking process, you can also refuse to accept the necessary setting of a cookie - for example by means of a browser setting which normally deactivates automatic setting of cookies.
