Like many other websites, we also use the so-called "cookies". Cookies are small files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive.

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have accessed our website via an advertisement sent by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google ad. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are informed about the total number of users who have clicked on their ad before getting redirected to a conversion tracking page. However, they will not receive any information that can personally identify users.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the required setting of a cookie - You can, for example, do this via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser to block cookies from the domain.
Please note that you cannot delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must reset the respective opt-out cookie.
This website uses Google Inc.'s remarketing feature. This feature is designed to present interest-based ads to website visitors within the Google Network. A "cookie" is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to identify the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the advertising network of Google. On these pages, visitors may be presented with ads that are specifically related to content that the visitor previously viewed on web pages using Google's remarketing feature.
Google has stated that it does not collect any personal information during this process. However, if you still do not want Google's Remarketing feature, you can always disable it by making the appropriate settings at: http://www.google.com/settings/ads
This site uses AdRoll re-targeting technology. With this we can specifically target those users with advertising who have already visited our website.
