We have created an internal concept to ensure this procedure.

Use of Google Maps
We use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google") on this website. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive map material.

By using this service, our location is shown to you and a possible approach is made easier. When you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (e.g. also your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there; this may also involve transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. 

The collection, storage and analysis are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in the display of personalized advertising, market research and / or the design of Google websites to meet the needs. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right. If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by turning off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website can then not be used.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please follow the option described above to make an objection.

This may, for example, concern the introduction of new services. The new data protection information will then apply to your next visit.
