9. Use of Google Ads Conversion

  1. We use the Google Ads service in order to use advertising material (“Google Ads”) to draw attention to our appealing offers on external websites. Based on the ad campaigns’ data, we can determine the level of success of individual promotional measures. We do this to pursue the interest of showing you advertisements of interest for you, of making our website more interesting for you and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
  2. This advertising material is provided by Google through so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use Ad Server cookies, which measure specific parameters to determine success, such as how often ads are displayed or how often users click on them. If you reach our website through a Google ad, Google Ads saves a cookie on your PC. These cookies generally become invalid after 30 days and are not intended for identifying you personally. In general, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post view conversions) and opt-out information (identifying that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are saved together with this cookie as analysis values.
  3. These cookies allow Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Google Ads customer’s website and the cookie saved on the user’s computer has not expired yet, Google and the customer can detect that the user has clicked an ad and was forwarded to the site. Each Google Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through websites of Google Ads customers. We do not collect and process personal data through the above-mentioned promotional measures. We merely receive statistical evaluations provided by Google. Based on these evaluations, we can detect which of the promotional measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive further data through use of these promotional measures. In particular, we cannot identify the users based on this information.
  4. Due to the marketing tools in use, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through use of this tool, and therefore wish to inform you based on our own knowledge: Through integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the respective part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, the provider may find out and save your IP address.
  5. You have different options for preventing participation in this tracking procedure: a) by making the corresponding settings in your browser software, in particular rejecting third-party cookies will ensure that you do not receive third-party ads; b) by deactivating the cookies for conversion tracking by changing the settings of your browser so that cookies from the domain “” are blocked,, although these settings are deleted, when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the provider, which are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads”, using the link, although this setting is deleted, when you delete your cookies; d) through permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome using the link We would, however, like to notify you that you may not be able to use all functions of our website, if you do so.
