Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify the respective users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse to allow the required cookie to be set - for example using browser settings that deactivate all automatic cookie setting, or by setting your browser to block cookies from the „“ domain.
