The intention is to then provide further associated services based on your use of the website and the Internet. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent the storage of these cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, please be advised that you may then be unable to use some of the features of this website.

Use of Google Maps
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have come to our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Ads sets a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad provided by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and cannot be used to identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Every Google Ads advertiser is given a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers receive information on the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information which would allow them to personally identify users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can prevent the setting of the cookie required for that purpose – for instance, by adjusting your browser settings to disable cookies in general or setting your browser to block cookies from the “googleadservices” domain.
Please bear in mind that you must not delete the opt-out cookies if you do not want any measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all the cookies in your browser, you will need to set the relevant opt-out cookie again.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the Remarketing function of Google Inc. This function is used to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google network. A cookie is installed on the website visitor’s browser which makes it possible to identify the user again when he or she visits sites affiliated to the Google advertising network. Visitors to these sites can be shown advertisements which refer to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites which use the Google Remarketing function.
Google Display & Video 360
On this website we use the Display & Video 360 tool from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which collects data for analysis, marketing and optimization purposes to help us improve our marketing efforts and our website. The data we collect is used by Display & Video 360 to associate advertising impressions and clicks with any related use of our website. This enables us to determine whether internet users who have seen our advertisements visit our website or what products they are interested in. This helps us to spend our advertising budget more efficiently. We may also use the information collected to provide advertisements based on your interests (for example, products you have viewed).
Pseudonymous online identification numbers (such as cookie IDs or IP addresses) are used to collect data. We do not store any uniquely identifiable information about you, such as your name or address. All the IDs we use only allow us to recognize your device and Internet browser. We do not use the information collected to personally identify you as a user of our website without your explicit consent.
