ab) Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
In order to record the use of our website statistically and assess it in order to optimize it, we also use Google AdWords Conversion Tracking. Google AdWords places a cookie (see section 4) on your computer if you have visited our website through a Google ad.

If the user visits a certain page of the AdWords client's website and if the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the client will be able to tell that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page.
Each Google AdWords client gets a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the website of AdWords clients. The information collected by the “conversion cookies” is used to provide aggregate conversion statistics to AdWords clients who have opted-in for Conversion- Tracking. Clients of AdWords are informed about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were forwarded to a Conversion-Tracking-Tag page.

If you do not want to participate in the tracking program, you can also refuse the required setting of a cookie - for example, via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. However, they do not get any information enabling them to identify users personally.
