8. Privacy Policy for the Use of Google Analytics

We have integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service for the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Analytics places a cookie on your system. Each time you access one of the individual pages of our website on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection you are using, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

You have the opportunity to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of such data by Google. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction.

Further information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html . Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

9. privacy policy for the use of Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of Maps functions by visitors to the website.

The terms of use of Google Maps can be found at http://www.google.com/intl/de_en/help/terms_maps.html. There you can also change your settings in the data protection center to manage and protect your data.

10. privacy policy on the use of Google reCaptcha

We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data entry in our contact form is made by a human or by an automated program (bot). For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not made aware that an analysis is taking place. Before using reCaptcha, website users are informed about its use and have the option to allow (consent) or reject (cancel) it. In the event of cancellation, reCaptcha is not used and no data is forwarded.

For more information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google's privacy policy, please see the following links: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/about/.

11. privacy policy for the use of Facebook

On our website components of the company Facebook are used. Facebook is a social network. The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland if a person concerned lives outside the USA or Canada.

Each time you access one of the individual pages on our website which has a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) integrated into it, the Internet browser on your system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook.

A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website you are visiting.

If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage you are visiting each time you visit our website and for the entire duration of your stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned to your Facebook account by Facebook. If you click on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or make a comment, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account and saves this personal data.

Facebook receives information through the Facebook component that you have visited our website whenever you are logged in to Facebook at the same time as you visit our website, regardless of whether or not you click on the Facebook component. If you do not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in this way, you can prevent it from being transferred by logging out of your Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. Download at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect your privacy. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by you to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
