There may be exceptions where Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the United States and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website usage and internet usage to us. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, as a result some features of our website may be restricted.

AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of our online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After clicking on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to personally identify the users. The cookie allows Google and us to recognize that you have clicked on an ad and that you have been redirected to our website.
Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. The cookies are not traceable via websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. AdWords customers will learn how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that will allow them to personally identify the users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you may object to the use. The conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. This means that no recording in the conversion tracking statistics shall take place.
Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of Article 6 (1) point f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior in order to optimize our website and possibly also our advertising.
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality on our website.
