Google AdWords and conversion measurement

We use the services of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) , Ireland, (“Google").

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We use Google’s online AdWords marketing tool “AdWords" to place ads on the Google advertising network (eg, in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) to show them to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to better target advertisements for and within our online offering so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. For example, if a user sees ads for products he’s been looking for on other online offerings, that’s called remarketing. For these purposes, when we visit our and other websites where the Google Advertising Network is active, Google will immediately execute Google code and become so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also referred to as “web beacons") incorporated into the website. With their help, the user’s device stores an individual cookie, ie a small file (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer.

Furthermore, we receive an individual “conversion cookie". The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only hear about the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.

The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google advertising network. For example, Google does not store and process users’ names or e-mail addresses, but processes the relevant data in a cookie-related manner within pseudonymous user profiles. That is, from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.
