In the following, we will inform you about the relevant data protection procedures that take place when you visit our website.

Thus, the processing for the protection of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR, i.e. the performance of our business activities, is necessary.

Since the collection of data for the provision of our website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of our website, you also have no right of objection.

2. Cookies

We use "cookies" on our website. These are small text files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your end device when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage your computer system or contain viruses, Trojan horses or other malicious software.

We use cookies to improve our website, for example to make it more user-friendly and to adapt it to user interests.

The following data will be stored and transmitted in the cookies:

(1) Language settings
(2) Login information
(3) Frequency of page views
(4) Usage of website functions

The data collected in this way will be pseudonmyized as a technical precaution. It is therefore not possible to associate the data with you. The data will not be stored together with other personal data.

The data processed by cookies is required for the purposes stated to safeguard our legitimate interests (the conduct of our business) pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. To prevent this, however, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer system or so a message appears before a new cookie is created. However, if you disable cookies completely, you may not be able to use all the features of our website.

Each browser may differ in the way it manages cookie settings. This is described in the help menu on each browser, which tells you how to change your cookie settings.

3. Website Analysis

On our website we use "Google Analytics", a web analysis service from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as: "Google"). Google uses cookies, which are small text files placed on your device, to help the website analyze how users use the site. Cookie-generated information about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If anonymization of the IP address to be transmitted by the cookie is activated on the website ("IP anonymization"), your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in only exceptional cases. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website on our behalf, compiling reports on website usage, and providing other services to us relating to website usage and internet usage. User usage profiles may be created from the processed data. The IP address transmitted when using Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

We use Google Analytics only with the previously described IP anonymization activated. This means that your IP address will only be processed by Google in an abbreviated form. Direct references to persons can be excluded.

We use Google Analytics for the purpose of analyzing the use of our website and continuously improving individual functions and offers as well as the user experience. By statistically evaluating user behavior we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This also includes our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data by Google, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your web browser to prevent the cookies generated by Google Analytics from being saved. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of our website. If you wish to prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your user behavior (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google, you can download and install the web browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

In order to oblige Google to process the data transmitted only in accordance with our instructions and to comply with the applicable data protection regulations, we have concluded a processing contract with Google. In the exceptional cases where personal information is transferred to the United States, Google has subjected itself to and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement between the European Union and the United States. Google therefore undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. Further information can be found in the following link: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI

4. Online-Marketing

This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and conversion tracking from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") as part of Google AdWords. We use the offer of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (Google Adwords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data from the advertising campaigns. This is to track our interest in showing you advertising that may be of interest to you, making our website more interesting to you, and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an AdWords ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files which are saved on your computer system. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Should the user visit certain pages on the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page. Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of Adwords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the Adwords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. We use Google Adwords because of our legitimate interest in a targeted advertising according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.

Google LLC, headquartered in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

You can obtain further information about Google's data protection provisions at the following Internet address: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

You can permanently deactivate cookies for advertising purposes by preventing them from appearing in your browser software or by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin

Please note that certain features of this website may not be available or may be available only to a limited extent if you have disabled the use of cookies.

5. Google reCAPTCHA

On this website we also use the reCAPTCHA function from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). This function is mainly used to distinguish whether the entry has been made by a human or misused by a machine and via automated processing. The service includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining the individual nature of actions on the Internet and the prevention of abuse and spam.

Google LLC, headquartered in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

6. Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (country) maps in order to display geographical information visually. When you use this service, our location will be displayed to you and any journey to it will be made easier.

When you visit any of the subpages that include the Google Maps map, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This takes place regardless of whether Google makes available a user account via which you are logged in or no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated to your Google profile, you must first log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. An evaluation of this nature is carried out in particular in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in the placement of personalized advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Google LLC, headquartered in the USA, is certified for the US-European Privacy Shield Agreement, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google within the framework of the use of Google Maps, there is also the possibility of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thereby the map display on this website can then not be used.

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on Google's website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

7. Google Web Fonts

This site uses web fonts provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") for the consistent display of fonts. When you visit a page, your browser loads the web fonts you need into its browser cache to display text and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must be connected to Google's servers. Google is therefore aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
