computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus do not
help in personal identification.
If you visit specific webpages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can
identify that you have clicked on the advertisement and were forwarded to this page.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no option that cookies
can be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.
The information that is obtained with the help of the conversion cookie helps to generate
conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have decided on conversion tracking. Here, the
customers find out about the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were
forwarded to a site provided with a conversion tracking tag. You however do not receive any
information which can be used to identify users personally.
If you do not wish to take part in the tracking, you can disagree to this use by not installing the
cookies through a corresponding setting of your browser software (deactivation option). You are then
not included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Innerhalb unseres Internetauftritts setzen wir mit Ihrer Einwilligung das „Tracking-Pixel” der Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) ein. Mit Hilfe dieses Pixels kann das Verhalten von Nutzern nachverfolgt werden, nachdem diese durch Klick auf eine Facebook-Werbeanzeige auf unsere Website weitergeleitet wurden. So können wir die Wirksamkeit der Facebook-Werbeanzeigen für statistische und Marktforschungszwecke erfassen. Die so erfassten Daten sind für uns anonym, das heißt wir sehen nicht die personenbezogenen Daten einzelner Nutzer. Diese Daten werden jedoch von Facebook gespeichert und verarbeitet, worüber wir Sie entsprechend unserem Kenntnisstand unterrichten. Facebook kann diese Daten mit ihrem Facebook-Konto verbinden und auch für eigene Werbezwecke, entsprechend Facebooks Datenverwendungsrichtlinie verwenden https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S.
California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), are used on these webpages.
If you invoke webpages of our Internet presence, which are provided with such a plugin, a link
is established with the Facebook servers and the plugin is displayed on the webpage through a
notification to your browser. Which of our webpages you have visited is transmitted to the
Facebook server. If you are logged in on Facebook, Facebook allocates this information to your
personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the “Like”
button, entering a comment), even this information is allocated to your Facebook account, which
you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin. If you do not want Facebook to
assign all acquired information to your Facebook profile immediately, you must either log out of

websites and advertisements on the Internet. If you do not want Google to allocate the collected
information directly to your Google Plus profile, you must first log out of Google Plus before
visiting our site.
