Under no circumstances will the collected data be sold or shared with any third party for other reasons.

Data processing on this website
When you use this website, the following access data is stored:
We use external service providers for storing the website and for processing the data collected on it. We have selected and contracted these service providers with care; they are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored. The stored data is required solely for technical or statistical purposes. It is not compared with other existing data, nor is any part of it shared with any third party.
(1) In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are assigned to and stored by the web browser you use on your system’s hard drive. A cookie is either sent to the browser by the web server or generated by a script in the website. Cookies cannot run any programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make our website more user-friendly and more effective as a whole.
(2) This website uses the following types of cookies, whose scope and functioning principles are explained below:
Transient cookies are only set temporarily and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They include session cookies in particular. These save what is referred to as a session ID, which is used to assign different queries from your browser to the joint session. As a result, your computer can be recognized if you return to our website. The session’s cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified amount of time that can differ, depending on the particular cookie. You can delete the cookies at any time in your browser’s security settings.
Third-party cookies are used in online marketing, for example to identify browsing habits. These are cookies which are set by a third party and are used, for example, to track online search habits. A typical example of this is Google Analytics.
You can configure your browser settings to suit your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that if you deactivate cookies, you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files saved on your computer, which allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened within Member States of the European Union and other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with other services related to website and internet usage.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Google data.
You can set your browser so that cookies are not stored. Should you choose this setting, you may not be able to use all the functions of the website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie with regard to your utilisation of the website (incl. your IP address) from being sent to and processed by Google if you download and install the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. As a result, IP addresses are processed in a shortened form which does not allow the individual user to be identified. Insofar as a personal connection can be made to the data collected about you, this connection will be removed immediately and the personal data erased.
We use Google Analytics in order to analyse the use of our website and regularly improve it. The statistics obtained enable us to enhance your user experience. For exceptional cases where personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google has committed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 (f ) GDPR.

Integration of Google Maps
(1) On this website, we use Google Maps. This allows us to show you interactive maps on the website itself, and enables you to conveniently use the maps function.
(2) When you visit the website, Google is informed that you have accessed the relevant sub-page of our website. In order to display the maps you have called up, your IP address is recorded by Google and may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account with which you are logged in, or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information is directly linked to your account. If you do not want your visit to be linked to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles, and uses it for advertising and market research purposes, and/or for a customised design of its website. Such analysis takes place in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide customised advertising, and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, in which case you must contact Google directly in order to exercise this right.
(3) For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the latter’s data privacy statements. There you will also find further details about your rights in this respect and the browser configuration options for protecting your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
