Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics. This service is offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
Google Analytics uses cookies – text files that are stored on your computer and that enable analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website, which is generated by the cookie, is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. For details concerning the data processing by Google Analytics, please refer to the Google security and privacy principles at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "anonymizeIP()", thereby making sure that the IP addresses are only processed in truncated form in order to prevent direct association with individuals. Thus, Google will first abbreviate your IP address in Member States of the European Union or other contracting states outside the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to and abbreviated on a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to perform other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet in general to the website operator. The IP addresses sent by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be consolidated with other data of Google. You can prevent the setting of cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; in this case, however, you may not be able to use all functions of this website.

Google AdWords

Additionally, natGAS uses Google AdWords as an advertising tool.
Analysis services of Google such as conversion tracking, remarketing or "Similar audiences" are used via this instrument. When a Google ad of natGAS Aktiengesellschaft is clicked, a cookie is automatically stored on your computer. As long as the cookie is active, Google and natGAS can see that you have clicked this Google add and to which website you have been forwarded. The cookies usually expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are not used to identify you. With the help of the conversion cookies, Google creates statistics for the website of natGAS, from which natGAS can derive how many users of the website have clicked these Google ads and which websites have been called up by the users after the natGAS website. However, we cannot identify the user within the scope of this process.
The setting of conversion cookies can be prevented by means of a setting in your browser. For example, this can be done by generally deactivating the automatic setting of cookies or by blocking cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com".
For further information, refer to the Google privacy policy at http://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/.
