Google Analytics

This website uses the web analytics service Google Analytics operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The cookies used by Google Analytics are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. We use Google Analytics based on our legitimate interest in analysing and regularly improving our website, and also to use the statistics obtained to regularly improve our offering and make it more interesting for you. Moreover the use of Google Analytics is based on your consent to the tracking of your surfing behaviour on our web pages and it being subjected to analytical analysis. Generally speaking, the information regarding your use of this website generated by the cookie is transferred to one of Google’s servers in the USA and stored there. These cookies can include the following information, for example: IP address, number of visits, date and time of the visit, duration of the visit, the access page from which you use the website (reference URL), the pages visited on our website, browser type/version and operating system used. Google will use this information on our behalf because we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour so that we can optimise both our offering on the website and our advertising. Google uses this information to evaluate use of our website in order to compile reports about website activity and provide us with other services associated with use of the website and the Internet. Likewise pseudonymised profiles of the users can be created from the personal data processed. We have enabled IP anonymisation on this website (so-called IP masking). This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union, in other European Economic Area member states and in Switzerland, before it is sent to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. By configuring your browser settings accordingly, you can prevent your browser storing cookies. However, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all or the full functions offered by this website. You can also prevent recording of the personal data relating to your use of the website generated by the cookie (including your IP address) by Google and processing of these personal data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: Alternatively, or in browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent collection of your personal data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. In this case, a special opt-out cookie is set on your device that prevents the future recording of your personal data when visiting this website. If you delete your stored cookies, you must click on this link again. You can find out more about how personal data is used by Google Analytics in Google’s personal data privacy policy: It is also possible that Google checks the use of the website by the user and may combine the personal data it has recorded with other information about the user that Google has recorded independently from other websites visited by the user and use this for its own purposes (e.g. to control advertising) at its own risk based on its own privacy policy. Further information on this and how Google processes personal data can be found in Google’s corresponding privacy policies:;

Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API, a map service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This means that we can display interactive maps on the website, making the map function easier to use. The legal basis for this derives from your consent based on information provided voluntarily to generate directions and our legitimate interest in displaying our location as well as making it easy to find the location we specify on the website. Using Google Maps may mean that information about the use of our website, including your IP address, is transferred to one of Google’s servers in the USA and stored there. Google will likewise transfer the information obtained from Google Maps to third parties, if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible for Google to identify at least some individual users based on the data they receive. It would be possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the website could be processed by Google for other purposes, which is beyond our control. It is possible to disable Google Maps and prevent data being transferred to Google by disabling JavaScript in your browser. In this case however, we would like to point out that you would not be able to display maps. Detailed instructions on how to manage your data in connection with Google products can be found here. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google is available here, together with additional information about your rights and configuration options in this respect to protect your privacy:

If you access a page on our website that has one of these plug-ins, your browser will establish a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in/pixel is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. This enables the behaviour of site visitors to be tracked after they have been transferred to the website of the provider having clicked on a Facebook advert.

This in turn allows the effectiveness of the Facebook adverts to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising optimisation measures.

This provides Facebook with the information that your browser accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not logged in to Facebook at the time. This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser directly to one of Facebook’s servers in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can immediately assign the visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. by clicking on the “Like” button, this information too is transferred directly to one of Facebook’s servers and stored there. The information will also be published on your Facebook profile and visible to your Facebook friends.

The use of Facebook pixels is based on Article 6 (1)(f) of the GDPR. The website owner has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and configuration options in this respect to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy:
