We are pleased you have visited our website and thank you for your interest! The protection of your privacy when using our website is important to us, so please take note of the following information about handling your data:
1) Basic Information about the Handling of Personal Data
You can visit our website without giving any information about yourself. With each access to our website usage data is transmitted by the respective Internet browser and in log files, the so-called server log files, such as the date and time of the retrieval, the name of the called page, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. This data cannot be assigned to a particular person and is used solely to ensure a trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer.
Personal data will be collected as part of contacting us (e.g. by contact form or e-mail). The data that is collected when using a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for answering your question, or for contacting the associated technical administrator. Your data will be deleted after the final processing of your request, if you wish to do so and the deletion does not conflict with legal retention obligations.
In order to make the visit of our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on different pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow us or our partner companies to recognize your browser on the next visit (persistent cookies). You can set your browser to be informed about the setting of cookies and to decide if you wish to accept or decline specific cookies individually, or in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.
3) Web Analytics Service
5.1 This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which allow you to analyze the use of the website. The website usage data generated by the cookies is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, in the event of the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other State’s parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this usage data to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services related to website use and internet use to the website operator.
The IP address submitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by using the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
As an alternative to the browser plug-in or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie to prevent the registration by Google Analytics within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie works only in the browser you opened it in and only for this domain):
It is noted that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()” and therefore IP addresses are only shortened in order to ensure anonymity.
4) Google Maps
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service that displays interactive (land) maps to visually represent geographic information.
When you use the Google Maps API, information about your use of our website (e.g. your IP address) is sent to Google servers in the USA and stored there. Google may continue to transfer this information to third parties where this is required by law or third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Google will not link your IP address to other Google data, however, it would be technically possible for Google to use user data obtained by using Google Maps to identify users, create personality profiles of users or process and use them for other purposes, which we cannot and do not have influence over.

If you have further questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, please contact us.
