These services use cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from being served ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, Google can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions, i.e. whether a user sees an ad and later visits the advertiser’s website and makes a purchase there. According to Google, these cookies do not contain any personal information.

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this service. According to Google, by integrating these services, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
