The Use of Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We’re using Google AdWords online advertising and Google AdWords’s conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “Google”). When you click a Google-served ad, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, contain no personal data and thus do not serve for personal identification.
If you visit certain Internet pages of our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we recognize that you have clicked on the ad and forwarded to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. There is therefore no way that cookies can be tracked through the AdWords website.
The information that is collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified.
If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can disagree with this usage by preventing the installation of the cookies by setting the appropriate settings for your browser software (deactivation option). They are not included in the conversion tracking statistics.
