This website uses the Google AdWords online advertising program and Google AdWords conversion tracking. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google-served ad.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking.

Customers are told the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and who were redirected to a conversion tracking tagged page.
However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies the users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by quickly disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your Internet browser under the setting: "User Preferences."
