We use Google Ads Conversion to draw attention to personal offers with the help of advertising material (Google Ads) on external websites. Based on data from the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertisements are. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are relevant to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to be able to provide a more personalized experience.

These advertising media are provided by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this we use ad server cookies, which allow us to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the reach of advertisements or clicks by the user. If you visit our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The analysis values ​​for this cookie are usually the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user does not want this anymore addressed).

These cookies allow Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits Ads-affiliated websites and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the advertiser can see that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads-affiliate. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Ads-affiliates. We do not collect or process any personal data ourselves in the above process. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the ad formats used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data about the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify the users based on this information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool.

Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out and store your IP address.
