Cookie statement

The internet pages of AMS use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser. Many internet sites and servers use cookies.

Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters that allows internet pages and servers to be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie is stored. This allows visited internet sites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, AMS can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

To simplify your use of our website, both technical and session cookies are used. These cookies are therefore strictly necessary for the functioning of the website.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as mentioned earlier, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the website user who uses cookies does not have to enter access data each time the website is visited, because it is taken over by the website and the cookie is therefore stored on the user's computer system.

All other cookies are only installed/activated after your explicit and prior consent during your first visit to the website. This consent can be expressed generally, for example in response to the cookie banner. Your consent will be traced for other and future visits to the website. As a user, you always have the right to withdraw your explicit consent in whole or in part.

Since cookies are personal data, their processing is governed by our Privacy Statement. By agreeing to our cookie policy, you give us permission to process your personal data (in particular the cookies) in accordance with our privacy statement.

Google Adwords

AMS has integrated Google AdWords on the website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows AMS to place ads in google search engine search engine search results and in Google's ad network. Google AdWords allows us to pre-define predetermined keywords with the help of which an ad will only appear in Google's search results when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the advertisements are distributed on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by including relevant advertisements on third-party websites and in the search results of the Google search engine and an insertion of third-party advertisements on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the data subject via Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain subpages, for example the shopping cart of an online shopping system, have been called up on our website.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used to determine the total number of users served through AdWords ads to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personal information, for example the internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in Ireland, Dublin. This personal data is stored by Google in Ireland, Dublin. Google may transfer this personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
