b) Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

In order to measure statistically the use of our website we use the online advertising program "Google AdWords", and in this context, conversion tracking for the purpose of optimizing our website. A cookie (see n° 4) for conversion tracking is placed by Google AdWords when a user gets to our website by clicking on an ad inserted by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, and do not serve to personally identify users. When visiting certain pages of the website of the AdWord-client and the cookie has not expired, Google and the client can recognize that the user had clicked on the advertisement and was forwarded to the site.

Each visitor who arrives at our site via Google AdWords receives a different cookie. Therefore the cookies may not be tracked by the websites. The information collected with the help of the conversion cookie serves to create conversation statistics for AdWord-clients that have decided to use conversion tracking.

The AdWords-clients learn the total number of users who have clicked on our advertisements, and were forwarded to a website that has a conversion tracking tag. They do not receive any information that allows identifying a user personally.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking you may easily deny, delete or deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie – for example in the user settings of the internet browser that deactivate the automatically placement of cookies. You may deactivate cookies for conversion-tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain The data protection declaration of Google for conversion tracking may be found here (
