Conversion Tracking of Our Web Adverts

We use conversion tracking to monitor the performance of our web adverts. When a customer clicks one of our ads on Google or selected Google Network sites, a temporary cookie is placed on the customer's computer so a conversion can be recorded if the customer purchases a product. No personal information is collected about the user. The only information we receive from the conversion tracking is a conversion information eg in a period of 30 days there were 10 sales when customers clicked on a particular advert and then proceeded to purchase a product from our shop.
