Your user behaviour is captured and analysed solely pseudonymised and it does not enable us to identify you. In par-ticular, the information is not merged with your personal data.

g) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically capture and analyse the use of our website in order to optimize our offerings for you. To this end, Google Adwords saves a cookie (point 4.) on your computer in so far as you access our website via a Google advertisement.
These cookies expire after 30 days and do not permit personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked the advertisement and was redirected to that page.
Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the webpages of Adwords customer. The information generated via the conversion cookie is used to produce conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted to use conversion tracking. The Adwords customers find out the total number of users who clicked their advertisement and were redirected to a page containing a conversion tracking tag. They do not receive any information, however, which can be used to identify users personally.
If you do not want to take part in the tracking procedure, you can refuse the required cookie – for example via browser settings which generally deactivate the automatic saving of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that it blocks cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain.

We use this information to show you offers on third-party sites that reflect your interests as established by your previous use behaviour. Your use behaviour is captured and analysed entirely pseudonymously and does not enable us to identify you. In particular, the information is not combined with your personal data.
Google complies with the data protection provisions in the "US Safe Harbor" Convention and is registered in the US Department of Commerce "Safe Harbor" programme. Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities for the website operator and to render other services related to the use of the website and the Internet.
Google may also transmit this information to third parties, in so far as this is required by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google. Third-party providers, including Google, display advertisements on websites on the Internet and use stored cookies to place advertisements on the basis of a user’s previous visits to the website. Permission to collect and store data can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.
