If you use this website for informational purposes only, i.e. you do not register yourself on it or otherwise transfer information, we only collect the personal data your browser transfers to our server. When you choose to visit our website, we collect the following data:

  • the IP address;
  • Date and time you retrieve it;
  • The region (not the address) from which the IP address accesses the website;
  • Browser language, browser type (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari) and version;
  • Operating system;

  • Browsing behavior on the website (e.g. when was the website visited, which parts of the website were clicked, how much time was spent on the website);
  • The website from which the request came.

We process and store this data to ensure the site works properly, to improve its content and to create statistical analyses, based on the aggregated data on surfing. We also process and store this data in order to analyze the technical operation of the site and ensure that our information technology systems are secure.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6(1) letter f GDPR is thus the necessity to display this website to you and ensure that it is stable and secure.

Contact e-mail address

Our website includes email addresses enabling you to contact our company quickly by electronic means and to communicate with us directly. If you contact us by email, the personal data you transfer to us is automatically stored. Such personal data transferred by you to us on a voluntary basis is used for the purposes of processing your enquiry or contacting you. We also store the IP address issued by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system you are using when you send the e-mail, as well as the time and date. It is necessary to collect this data in order to be able to check the (possible) misuse of your email address at a later point in time and thus protect ourselves in law. We do not pass these data on to third parties.

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API, a map service of Google Inc. (“Google”), to display an interactive map and to create route maps. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

When you use Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be sent to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

We have no influence and cannot therefore assume any responsibility for the further processing and use of the data by Google.

The Google privacy policy and additional terms of use or Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

If you do not want Google to collect, process or use data concerning you via our website, you can deactivate JavaScript in your browser settings. You will not then be able to display the maps, however.

Google Web Fonts

Our website uses the "Web Fonts" provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") for consistent font presentation. When you visit a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, your browser needs to connect to Google's servers. This transmits the information to Google that our website was requested from your IP address. We use Google Web fonts to make our website consistent and appealing on different devices. This is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If you are using a browser that does not support web fonts, our website will be displayed with a standard font of your computer.

More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Analysis of use of our website

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyze how the website is used by you.

The information generated by a cookie on your usage of the website (including your IP address) is sent to and stored on a Google server in the United States. Google uses this information to analyze your usage of the website, compile reports on website activity for us and provide other services connected to the use of the website and the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or in so far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. The IP address your browser supplies to Google Analytics is never combined with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent the installation of cookies using the relevant setting in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. By using this website, you agree the data collected about you being processed by Google in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.

At any time, you can refuse the collection and use of your IP address by Google Analytics with effect for the future. More detailed information on this is available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics was expanded by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure the anonymized recording of IP addresses.
