Google Adwords

The website of Confovis GmbH uses the online advertising program „Google AdWords“ which sets cookies by way of conversion tracking, as soon as a user clicks on an advert placed by Google. The validity of these cookies expires after 30 days and they do not personally identify individuals. If a user visits a certain page of the website while the cookies are valid, it can be seen that the user has clicked on the advert and has been passed on to this page. Each customer of Google AdWords will get another cookie, so that the user cannot be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of cookies is used, among other things, for generating statistics about the total number of users that have clicked on an advert and that have been passed on to a page marked with a conversion tracking tag. However, this information cannot be used to personally identify a user. Users who do not wish to participate in the tracking can easily deactivate the cookie of the Google conversion tracking through their Internet browser under “User settings”.
