5.  Cookies

We use cookies or similar procedures whenever you use our web site or our offers. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or your mobile terminal by your browser and which enable your computer or terminal to be recognised, even across different web pages. These cookies contain no personal data. Some of the cookies we use (so-called “session cookies”) are deleted again at the end of your browser session, that is, when you close your browser. Other cookies (“persistent cookies”) are stored on your terminal and enable us or our service providers to recognise your browser when you next visit.

You can prevent the use of cookies by making the appropriate setting in your browser software. However, this may prevent certain areas of the web site or offers from functioning as intended.

The service providers that we employ may also use cookies, especially for Web analysis.

6.  Web analysis

In order to design our web pages in a demand-oriented manner and update them continuously, we use Web analysis services on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that permit analysis of your usage of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand if you are in a member state of the European Union or in another signatory state to the agreement covering the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the owner of this website to analyze your usage of the website, to compile reports about the website's activity, and to provide the website owner with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google does not link other data to the IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics. You can stop the storing of cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; however, please note that in that case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. Moreover, you can prevent Google from recording or processing the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link:

Alternatively, you can prevent Google from recording or processing your data by clicking on the following link:


This installs an opt-out cookie, which prevents the future recording of your data when you visit this website. Please note that it needs to be re-installed after a deletion of all cookies.
We also want to point out that Google Analytics was expanded by the code "_anonymizeIp();" on this website to ensure that only an anonymized analysis of IP addresses is possible
Data collected by Google that can be related to persons and are linked to cookies, user IDs, or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months.

7.  Google Maps

This web site uses Google Maps to show locations. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA, 94043 USA. The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1) GDPR in designing our web site in an interesting and demand-oriented manner.

Each time the Google Maps component is loaded, Google sets a cookie in order to process user settings and data when a user loads the page into which the Google Maps component is integrated. This cookie is not generally deleted when the browser is closed, but expires after a certain period unless deleted manually by you.

If you visit the web site, Google receives information that you have loaded the relevant sub-page of our web site. The data listed in section 3 above is also sent to Google by your browser. This occurs irrespective of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged on or whether there is no user account. If you are logged on to Google, your data is associated directly with your account. If you wish to prevent the association with your profile by Google, you must log off before activating the button. Google stores your data as a user profile and uses it for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or designing its web site in a demand-oriented manner. Such analysis occurs in particular (even in the case of users who are not logged on) to generate demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activity on our web site. You have the right to object against the generation of this user profile, although you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not approve of the processing of your data, you can deactivate the Google Maps service and thus prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do so, you must deactivate the JavaScript function in your browser. However, we should point out that you would then either be unable to use Google Maps altogether or only in a restricted manner.

Further information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the processing thereof by Google Maps can be found in Google’s data protection declarations. There you can also find additional information about your data protection-related rights and possible settings to protect your privacy:

Google also processes your personal data in the United States and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield,

The Google Maps conditions of use can be found under "Google Maps Conditions of Use."
