Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies are not traceable through AdWords client websites.

However, advertisers are not provided with information that allows them to personally identify the users. If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can object to the use. For this, the conversion cookie needs to be disabled in the user settings of the browser. Then, there is no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics.
