We would like to point out that Internet-based data transmission has security gaps, which means that complete protection against access by third parties is impossible.
We use so-called cookies on our site to recognize multiple use of our offer by the same user / Internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores on your computer. They serve to optimise our Internet presence and our offers. These are mostly so-called “session cookies”, which are deleted after the end of your visit.
In some cases, however, these cookies provide information in order to recognise you automatically. This recognition takes place on the basis of the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way serves to optimise our offers and make it easier for you to access our website.
For technical reasons, the following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, is recorded (so-called server log files):
– Browser type and version
– used operating system
– Website from which you visit us (Referrer URL)
– Website you visit
– Date and time of your access
– Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have entered and thus does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our Internet presence and our offers.
On our website we offer you the possibility to subscribe to our newsletter. With this newsletter we inform you about our offers at regular intervals. In order to receive our newsletter, you need a valid e-mail address. We will check the e-mail address you have entered to see whether you are actually the owner of the e-mail address you have entered or whether the owner is authorised to receive the newsletter. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will store your IP address and the date and time of your subscription. In the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge, this serves as security on our part. Further data is not collected on our part. The data collected in this way will only be used to subscribe to our newsletter. It will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site also does not take place. You can cancel your subscription to this newsletter at any time. Details can be found in the confirmation e-mail and in each individual newsletter.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization function on our website. In this case, your IP address is already shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymised.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
In addition, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about your website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services that we may use. Further information about the deactivation option provided by Google and the activation of this option can be found via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

If you do not agree with this processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thus prevent the transmission of data to Google.
