Personal data is data that refers unambiguously to a particular natural person. You can find the legal basis for data protection in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the German Teleservices Act (TMG).

We would draw your attention to the fact that internet-based data transmission has security flaws which make complete protection from access by third parties impossible.
We process your personal data (e.g. name, address, email address, IP address etc.) only in accordance with statutory requirements (EU-GDPR and TMG). In this sense, personal data is “any information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person” (Article 4 (1), EU-GDPR).
Rights of notification, correction and deletion of data, revocation, restriction of processing, data transfer, complaints to the supervisory authority
You have the right to be informed of the personal data that is stored about you and a right to have inaccurate data corrected, blocked or deleted. You may revoke any permissions you have granted.
You also have a right to restrict processing and to receive the data stored about you in a current machine-readable format.
Duration of use
If we have stored personal data about you, it will be deleted as soon as the reason for use no longer applies.
Most of these cookies are ‘session cookies’ that are deleted again once you have left the site. Sometimes, however, these cookies send information so that we can recognise you automatically next time. This recognition is possible on the basis of the IP address stored in the cookies. The information we obtain in this way enables us to optimise the service we offer and to make it easier for you to access our site.
You can use the settings in your browser to stop these cookies from being installed but we would advise you that in such cases you may not be able to use all of the functions of our website to their fullest extent.
For technical reasons, we record amongst other things the following data (server log files) that your internet browser sends to us or to our webspace provider:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Website from which you are visiting us (Referrer URL)
- Website that you are visiting
- Date and time of access
- Your internet protocol (IP) address
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data that you have supplied, and cannot be linked to any particular person. It is analysed for statistical purposes to help us optimise our internet presence and services.
Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function
On our site we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, referred to below as ‘Google’. Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’ – text files that are stored on your computer to allow Google to analyse your use of the website.
Use of Google Maps with recommendation components
On our website we use Google Maps in combination with the ‘share’ function. Google Maps is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, referred to below as ‘Google’.
Each time this service is launched, Google creates a cookie that processes user settings and data when displaying the page into which Google Maps is integrated. Generally this cookie is not deleted when the browser is closed, although it does expire after a specific period unless manually deleted beforehand.
Use of Google Maps and of information required by Google Maps is subject to Google’s terms and conditions
http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html and to the additional Google Maps terms and conditions
In addition, the Google Maps function includes the following recommendation buttons:
- Google+ button provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA;
- facebook button provided by facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA;
- Twitter button provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
When you launch the Google Maps site, these recommendation elements prompt the browser that you are using to download the appropriate image of the buttons from the relevant provider. This means that the provider concerned – specified above – is aware which specific page in our internet site you are actually visiting.
If, at the point at which the Google Maps site is launched, you are logged into your personal account with the named provider, the provider will be able to record the information thus obtained via the website recommended by you, along with your IP address and other browser-related information, and link it to your account.
If you want to prevent such data about you and your use of our website from being sent to and stored by the provider, you must log out from that provider before visiting our site.

Use of facebook components
We use buttons provided by facebook.com on our website. Facebook is a service provided by facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
Every time our website is launched where such a button is installed, this element prompts your browser to download the appropriate image of the button from facebook. This means that facebook is aware which specific page in our internet site you are actually visiting.
If you are logged into facebook when you launch our site, facebook identifies which specific page you are visiting from the information collected by the element and it associates this information with your personal facebook account. For example, if you click on the ‘like’ button or submit a relevant comment, this information is sent to your personal user account with facebook and saved there. In addition, the fact that you have visited our site will be passed on to facebook. This will happen regardless of whether or not you click on the button.
If you want to prevent such data about you and your use of our website from being sent to and stored by facebook, you must log out from facebook before visiting our site. Facebook’s data privacy statement provides more detailed information about this, and in particular about the collection and use of data by facebook, about your rights in this regard and about the ways you can use settings to protect your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
