Each Google AdWords customer receives another cookie. The cookies cannot be kept track of on the websites of AdWords clients. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The clients find out the total number of users that have clicked on their advertisements and have been led to a site furnished with a conversion tracking tag. However, they obtain no information that can personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to its use by simply disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie in the Internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies are saved on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the usage behaviour in order to optimise its online offering as well as its advertising.
