Our purpose is to show you advertisements of interest to you and to make our website more interesting to you. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sub-section f GDPR.    
The advertising is delivered by Google via so-called "ad server". We use cookies to measure certain performance metrics, such as ads or user clicks.

These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer will be able to detect that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We receive only statistical evaluations provided by Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we can not identify the users on the basis of this information.    
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to Google's servers.
