A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given express consent to this according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR;

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device and do not contain any viruses, trojans or other malware.

Information resulting in connection with the use of a specific device is stored in a cookie – a cookie consists of a name and a value. However, this does not mean that we are immediately aware of your identity.

A basic distinction is made between technically necessary and unnecessary cookies:

  • technically necessary cookies: The necessary data storage includes cookies, which are essential for the functions of a website. This means, for example, the storage of log-in data, the shopping cart or the language selection using so-called session cookies (which are deleted when the browser is closed);
  • technically unnecessary cookies: Text files that are not only used for the functionality of the website, but also collect other data are regarded as unnecessary cookies. These include the following:
    • Tracking cookies (based on user-behavior);
    • Targeting cookies (so-called advertising cookies);
    • Analysis cookies; and
    • Cookies from social media websites.

The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes mentioned to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

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

The EU Directive 2009/136/EC (“EU Cookie Directive”) requires that the storage of technically unnecessary cookies requires your consent. In Germany, this directive was implemented in section 25 of the Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (“TTTDSG”).

Analysis Tools

a) Tracking Tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for you in order to optimize our offer. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned regulation.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

b) Google Maps

We may integrate Google Maps on our website to show you where we are located. The route description always shows you the best or fastest way to us. Google Maps is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”).

In such case, address data will be determined from you on the basis of location data and IP address if this function is activated in the device you are using or in the browser. If the location data is not to be processed, the user has the option of deactivating location determination on his mobile device or in the browser.

The address data is transmitted to Google and converted into geodata in order to be able to display the requested information. The address data is stored by Google until the purpose of the data transmission has been fulfilled and then deleted. Further information on data protection at Google is available here.

The data is transmitted in a legitimate interest on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

c) Google Analytics

We may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google, for the purpose of tailoring our pages to requirements and continuously optimizing them. In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see section 4) are used. In such case, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as:

  • browser type / version;
  • the operating system used;
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page);
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address); and
  • time of the server request,

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and needs-based design of this website. This information may also be passed on to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of us. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on. As an alternative to the browser add-on, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics Help.
