These Cookies lose validity after 30 days, neither contain person-related data nor aim at personal identification of the visitor.
In case you visit specific sites of our website and the cookies are still valid, Google and our company may detect your click on this ad and the redirecting onto the respective site. Every Google AdWords client is provided with a different Cookie. Therefore it is impossible to track Cookies via the websites of AdWords clients.
Information obtained by means of the Conversion-Cookie is useful to generate conversion statistics for AdWords clients that have decided to use Conversion-Tracking. Clients are provided with the total number of users that have clicked on their ad and have been redirected to a site using a Conversion-Tracking Tag. However, they don’t receive personal information related to the user’s identity.
If you don’t want to share the tracking function you may deny it by prohibiting the installation of Cookies via a specific setting in your browser (deactivation function). Hereby you will not be listed in the Conversion-Tracking statistics.
