DoubleClick by Google web analysis service
We use the DoubleClick by Google online marketing tool provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“DoubleClick”).
Cookie IDs also allow DoubleClick to log conversions related to ad requests, for example if a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later goes to the advertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain personally identifiable information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no control over the extent and further use of the data collected through the use of this tool by Google and therefore inform you to the best of our knowledge: By integrating DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked an ad from us.

Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find and store your IP address.
