As part of this technical process, Google or Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of data that is used to generate commission statements. Google may also track, among other things, the fact that the individual clicked certain links on our website.
The setting of cookies enables Alphabet Inc. to analyse the use of our website. Alphabet Inc. becomes aware of this in the form of personal data, such as the IP address, which is used, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages in order to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be carried out. Based on the embedded pixel-code, Alphabet Inc. can recognize if and when a website was opened by a person and which links were clicked.
