4) Use of Google Adwords conversion tracking
This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. These cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page. Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an Adwords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie information is used to create conversion statistics for the Adwords advertisers who have opted in to conversion tracking. The advertisers can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and were directed to the page using the conversion tracking tag. The advertisers do not, however, obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally. If you do not wish to participate in this type of use, you can object to this use by easily disabling the cookie of Google conversion tracking on your internet browser and user settings. In doing so you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
