This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Cookies are small text files that your web browser saves on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

The information obtained from the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are informed of the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, the advertisers do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify the users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can simply deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. If you do this, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Conversion cookies are used on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

You can set your browser so that you are notified when you receive a cookie so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether you want to accept it or not. You can also set your browser so that it automatically accepts or rejects cookies under certain conditions, or that it automatically deletes cookies when you close your browser.
