Google AdWords

We have integrated Google AdWords on this site. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run both Google and Google Network search engine results. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-set keywords that will display an ad on Google’s search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to topic-related sites using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords. The operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our site by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google’s search engine, and by displaying third-party advertisements on our site. If an affected person reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be placed on Google’s information technology system by Google. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. These visit statistics are then used by us to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future.

Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords advertiser receives any information from Google that could identify the data subject. The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the websites visited by the affected person. The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting your browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. In addition, the data subject has the opportunity to object to Google’s interest-based advertising. To do this, the person concerned must access the link  from each of the browsers they use and make the desired settings there.
