Google Ads

I use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of this website for the purpose of optimization. Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer if you have accessed this website via a Google ad.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of the AdWords customer’s website (Clinical Excellence GmbH websites) and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and Clinical Excellence GmbH can recognize that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this website.

Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for those AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a website with a conversion tracking tag.

However, AdWords customer will not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies.
