We also use Google Conversion Tracking to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our website for you. Google Adwords places a cookie (see number 4) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google advertisement.

Adwords customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag.
