Google AdWords Conversion-Tracking

This website contains the Google AdWords online-advertising program and its conversion tracking analytics service. Google Conversion Tracking is an analytics service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). If you click on a Google-served ad, a cookie for conversion tracking will be saved on your computer. This cookie will expire after 30 days. This cookie does not contain any personal information, meaning there is no way to personally identify the user. During the cookie's 30-day lifespan, Google and the JKU can retain the information that you have clicked on the ad and have thus been redirected to our website. Since every Google AdWords customer gets its own cookie, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Google AdWords customers.

The information provided by the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. This tells Google AdWords customers the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were thus redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, the user's personal identification is not provided based on this information.
