If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired yet, Google and we can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.

Each Google AdWords advertiser receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of another AdWords advertiser. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for ad-words customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and that were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive any information that could put them into state to identify the users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this easily by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in the user preferences of your web browser.
