2.5. Online campaigns through Google Adwords
On this site, we use Google AdWords. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows the advertiser to place ads on Google search engine results and on the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to predefine certain keywords by which an ad from Google search results is displayed when the user uses the search engine to receive a relevant search result for those keywords. On the Google Advertising Network, ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an automated algorithm, taking into account the defined keywords. The Google AdWords Business Company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES. The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our site by including relevant advertising on third-party websites and Google search engine results. If a data subject reaches our site through a Google ad, a conversion cookie is placed on the user’s information technology system through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the target person. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to verify that certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online store platform, have been accessed on our site. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and we can tell whether a user who has arrived from an AdWords ad on our site has generated sales, that is, executing or canceling a sale of goods. The data and information collected by using the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our site. These visit statistics are used to determine the total number of users to whom AdWords ads were displayed to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the target person. The conversion cookie stores your personal information, e.g. the websites visited by the data subject. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through technical processes to third parties. The user may at any time prevent cookies from being set up by our site as mentioned above through a proper setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently refuse to set cookies. Such configuration of the Internet browser used would prevent Google from introducing a conversion cookie into the user’s information technology system. Additionally, a cookie set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time through your internet browser or other software. The user has the ability to refuse Google’s interest-based ads. Therefore, the user must access each of the used browsers by the link www.google.com/settings/ads and set the desired settings. Additional information and applicable data protection provisions on Google can be downloaded at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/
2.6. Using Google Remarketing
Google remarketing services are integrated on this site. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords, which allows a company to display advertising to Internet users who have previously accessed this company’s site. Therefore, Google Remarketing integration allows the company to create advertising based on user interests and therefore to display relevant advertisements to Internet users interested in the products and services being marketed. The Google Remarketing Service Company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States. Google Remarketing allows us to show ads on the Google Network or other websites, based on individual needs and tailored to the interests of Internet users. Google Remarketing places a cookie in the user’s information technology system. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the cookie setting, Google allows us to recognize our site visitor if they visited web pages that are also part of the Google advertising network. With each access to an internet site that has integrated Google Remarketing, the web browser automatically identifies the target user with Google. During this technical process, Google receives personal information, such as the IP address or user’s browsing behavior, which Google uses for relevant advertise in that user’s interests. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties. The target user may, as mentioned above, refuse Google’s interest-based advertising. To do so, the target user must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads
