We aim at showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
  2. These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of advertisements or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google advert, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. In general, these cookies expire after 30 days and are not intended to personally identify you. With regard to this cookie, the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

On the basis of these evaluations, we are able to determine which of the advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data relating to the use of advertising measures; in particular we are not able to identify users on the basis of this information.
