Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you access our website via an ad published by Google, Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer.

Every Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Thus, the cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.

However, they will not receive any information that would enable the personal identification of users.
