They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of the company Google (Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Analytics uses cookies for this purpose, which enable an analysis of your use of our website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored. We use Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", so that the IP addresses transferred to Google are only processed in abbreviated form in order to exclude the possibility of direct personal references (IP masking). Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your visit to the website, compiling reports on website activity for our website and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. 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. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website.

Please note that the objection must be made again by you if you remove the cookies in your browser or access our website with another browser. You can find further information about Google Analytics here : http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html

Google Maps

We use Google Maps to display maps. The integration requires that Google can perceive the IP address of the user. The IP address is required to send the content to the user's browser. We would like to point out that Google has its own privacy policy, which is independent of ours. Before using our website, please inform yourself about Google's privacy policy at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Google Maps is based on Java Script code, so you can prevent it from running altogether by disabling Java Script in your browser settings or by installing a Java Script blocker. Please note that our website may not display correctly if you do so.

Location data

You have the option of having your location determined via your browser during the location search. Our website will only use this information to determine the location that is nearest to you and to display it to you. Typically, your IP address, information about nearby wireless access nodes and a random identification number are collected and processed to determine your location. Your browser provider and the provider of the browser's localization service also receive this information. The Google Location Service, which is operated by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), is particularly widespread. Further information on data protection at Google can be found at www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Please also refer to the information provided by your browser vendor regarding the localization feature.

Use of the YouTube plugin

On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to Youtube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your Youtube account.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

If you've disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, you won't have to worry about these cookies even when you watch YouTube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at "Youtube" can be found in the provider's data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Web Fonts from Monotype

We use fonts provided by Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc, 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801, USA ("Monotype") to display fonts on our website. This is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that enables the display of fonts. The integration is done via Java-Script-Code and requires that Monotype can perceive the IP-address of the user. By using web fonts, an external server of Monotype outside the EU (e.g. in the USA) can be accessed when using this service. Please note that Monotype has its own privacy policy, which is independent of ours. Please refer to the Monotype privacy policy at www.monotype.com/de/rechtshinweise/datenschutzrichtlinie/. Web Fonts is based on Java Script code, so you can prevent its execution altogether by disabling Java Script in your browser settings or installing a Java Script blocker.
