5.1 Use of Google Maps


On our website, we use the Google Maps component of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA; hereinafter “Google”.

Each time the Google Maps component is accessed, a cookie is inserted by Google in order to process user settings and data when displaying the page into which the Google Maps component is integrated. This cookie is generally not deleted when the browser is closed but expires after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually first.If you do not agree to this processing of your data, you have the option of blocking the Google Maps service and in this way preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you have to deactivate the JavaScript function in your browser. However, we should point out that in this case you will not be able to use Google Maps or only to a limited extent.

The use of Google Maps and the information obtained through it occurs pursuant to Google’s Terms of Service at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html and the additional business terms for Google Maps at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.



5.2 Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, which operates as a processor for us.

Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files stored on your computer which enable analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of the website generated by cookies is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

The following data is processed:

browser type/version: aggregate usage analysis plus optimisation of the website and adjustment of content;

operating system used: aggregate usage analysis plus optimisation of the website and adjustment of content;

referrer URL (the website visited before ours);

IP address, which is anonymised;

time of server request.


The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. On our website, we have also expanded Google Analytics by adding the “IP anonymisation” code. This ensures that your IP address is hidden so that all data is collected anonymously. Consequently, in anonymising the IP, your IP address is first abbreviated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address sent to a Google server in the United States and abbreviated there. Google uses this information generated on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports about website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website use and internet activity.


Our legitimate interest in data processing also resides in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is sent to the United States, Google has agreed to abide by the EU-US Privacy Shield.

You can prevent the storage of cookies through a setting contained for this purpose in your browser software; however, we should point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full.

You can also prevent the capture for Google of data generated by the cookie referring to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly for browsers in mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection of information by Google Analytics by clicking here to block Google Analytics.

This sets up an opt-out cookie preventing the future capture of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie applies only to the browser in question and only to our website and is downloaded to your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to set up the opt-out cookie again. [Note. You can find information about the integration of the opt-out cookie at: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable

We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from double-click cookies as well as AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this to occur, you can deactivate this in the ad settings manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en).
You can find further information about data protection in connection with Google Analytics on the Google Analytics Help page (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).


5.3. Use of Social plug-ins (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube)

Social plug-ins of the social networks "Facebook" (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA), "Google+" (Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland), "Twitter" (Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA) and YouTube (Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland) are contained in our website. These services are offered by the respective companies ("providers"). Within the framework of our online presence, the social plug-ins are identified by the respective buttons associated with the service. Based on the data transmitted via the social plug-ins to the respective service, the service might be able to associate you with your account with them. In order to increase the protection of your data on our website, the social plug-ins are integrated into our website by means of the "2-click solution". This ensures that when a page of our web presence containing such social plug-ins is viewed, an automatic connection with the servers of the respective providers is not yet established. The activation of the function of the respective social plug-in takes place in two steps. In order to enable a social plug-in, you must first click on the link on our website. As a result, the social plug-in is initially activated and your browser connects to the servers of the respective provider. With a second click, you can now interact with the social plug-in and, for example, transmit your recommendation. If you are already logged into one of the providers’ social networks, the providers can directly associate the visit to this website with your profile. If you click onto the social plug-ins, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to one of the providers’ servers and stored there. The information may also be published in the social network and displayed there amongst your contacts. If you would like to prevent such an immediate association of your data collected via our website with your profile, you must log out of your account with the respective provider before visiting our website. For the scope and purpose of data collection by the respective service as well as the further processing and use of your data there, please refer directly to the data protection information on the website of the service. There, you can also find additional information about your relevant data protection rights and possible settings for protecting your privacy.

5.4. Use of Facebook pixel

This website uses the Facebook pixel of the social network "Facebook" (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA). This is for the purpose of presenting interest-related advertisements to visitors to our website within the framework of their visit to the social network Facebook. Via the Facebook pixel, a direct connection to Facebook servers is established when our website is visited. In the process, the fact that you visited our website is transmitted to the Facebook server and Facebook associates this information with your personal Facebook user account. We would like to point out that as the provider of this website, we do not obtain knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and their use by Facebook. For more information on the collection and use of the data by Facebook and about your rights in this respect and your options to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction on processing is lifted.

Right to erasure
a)    Obligation to erase

You may request that the controller erase personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller will be obliged to erase this data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

(1) The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the controller

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR; and

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This may not adversely affect the freedoms and rights of other persons. The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

Right to withdraw the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to withdraw your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or significantly affects you in some similar way. This does not apply if the decision:

(1) is necessary for the entry into, or performance of, a contract between you and a data controller;

(2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or

(3) is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1) GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

With regard to the cases referred to points (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention from the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the progress and outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
