If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: "Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

For more information on terms of use and data protection, please see Privacy Policy - Privacy Policy & Terms of Use - Google.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google LLC server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents an overriding legitimate interest on our part within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google's privacy policy:

Embedded YouTube videos

This online offer uses the YouTube video platform, which is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066, USA ("YouTube"). YouTube is a platform that enables the playback of audio and video files.

When you call up a corresponding page of our website, the embedded YouTube player establishes a connection to YouTube so that the video or audio file can be transmitted and played back. In the process, data is also transferred to YouTube as the responsible party. We are not responsible for the processing of this data by YouTube.

For more information on the scope and purpose of the data collected, on the further processing and use of the data by YouTube, on your rights and the data protection options you can select, please refer to YouTube's data protection notice.

Social plugins

We use so-called social plugins of various social networks in our online offer. When using the plugins, your internet browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. This provides the respective provider with the information that your internet browser has accessed the corresponding page of our online offer, even if you do not have a user account with the provider or are not currently logged in to it. Log files (including the IP address) are transmitted by your internet browser directly to a server of the respective provider and may be stored there. The provider or its server may be located outside the EU or the EEA (e.g. in the USA).

The plugins are independent extensions of the social network providers. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data collected and stored by the providers of the social networks via the plugins.

For the purpose and scope of the collection, further processing and use of the data by the social network, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the respective social network.

If you do not want the providers of the social networks to receive and possibly store or further use data about this online offer, you should not use the respective plugins.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
