§ 10 Google Adwords Conversion

  1. We use the offerings from Google AdWords, a service from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter, “Google”) in order to, via advertisements (so-called Google AdWords), to make potential customers aware of our attractive offers on external websites. In relation to the data from the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. Thus, we have the interest in displaying advertising to you which is of interest to you, to design our website to be more interesting to you and to obtain a fair calculation of advertising costs. 
     
  2. These ads are delivered by Google via the so-called “ad server”. Therefore we use ad server cookies, by means of which certain parameters can be measured for the assessment of success such as the number of ad impressions or clicks by the users. Insofar as you reach our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords shall store a cookie in your device. As a rule, these cookies shall lose their effectiveness after 30 days and are not intended to personally identify you. As a rule, in addition to this cookie, the following shall be stored as analytical values: The unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) as well as opt-out information (designation that the user would no longer like to be addressed). These cookies enable Google to recognise your Internet browser. Insofar as a user visits certain pages of the website of an AdWords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and was guided to this page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. We ourselves process no personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We receive merely statistical evaluations from Google. Based upon these evaluations, we can determine which of the advertising measures used have been particularly effective. We receive no more extensive data from the usage of the ads. In particular, we cannot identify the users based upon this information. 

  3. Based upon the marketing tools used, your browser shall automatically create a direct connection to the Google server. We have no control whatsoever over the scope and the continued usage of the data which are collected by using this tool by Google and we thus inform you of the following based upon the extent of our knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google shall receive the notification that you have visited the corresponding section of our Internet site or clicked on one of our ads. Insofar as you have registered for a service from Google, Google can categorise the visit to your account. Even if you have not registered with Google and/or have not logged in to Google, the possibility exists that the provider will find out your IP address and store it. 
     
  4. You can prevent your participation in this tracking procedure in various ways: 
    • by correspondingly adjusting the settings on your browser software–in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will have the result that you will receive no ads from third-party providers 
    • by deactivating the cookies for conversion tracking by adjusting the settings on your browser in such a manner that cookies are blocked by the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads whereby these settings shall be deleted if you delete your cookies; 
    • By deactivating the interest-based ads from the providers who are part of the self-regulation campaign called “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices whereby these settings shall be deleted if you delete your cookies; 
    • By making permanent deactivation in your browsers by clicking on the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. However, we wish to point out that, in this case, you may not be able to comprehensively use all functions of this website.

Thus, Google can identify your prior visit to our website.
