Integration of services and content provided by third parties
Our provision includes content and services performed by other providers. Examples are maps which are made available by Google Maps, videos from YouTube as well as graphics and images from other websites. In order for such data to be accessed and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers therefore have access to the IP address of the respective user.

Even if we try to restrict ourselves to using third party providers who only require the IP address in order to supply content, we have no influence over whether the IP address is saved. This process is used for statistical purposes, amongst others. Provided that we are aware that the IP address will be saved, we indicate this to our users.

This website uses so-called cookies (text files) to facilitate the use of the site and to ensure that the site content is correctly displayed. These cookies contain information about the browser, the IP address, the operating system and the internet connection. The website can also be loaded without cookies. However, please note that this can significantly restrict the functions and the convenience of using the website. Cookies can be deactivated at any time using the web browser. Cookies can be used for a maximum of 90 days.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies (text files) which are stored on the computer and which permit analysis of the usage of the website. The information generated concerning the usage of the website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, due to IP anonymisation, Google's IP address will be truncated within member states of the European Union or other countries which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information in order to analyse the utilisation of the website, to compile reports concerning website activities and to provide other services linked to website utilisation and internet utilisation to the website operator. The IP address transmitted as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. It is possible to prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate setting in the browser software. Cookies can be used for a maximum of 90 days.

Facebook Social Plug-in
Plug-ins from the social network Facebook are integrated into our website. The plug-ins can be recognised using the Like button or the Facebook logo. When opening the website with the Facebook plug-in, a direct connection to Facebook is established, which informs Facebook that the corresponding website for our offer has been accessed. This also applied for users who are not registered with Facebook. Information on the data protection policy, the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing as well as the privacy settings can be found on Facebook.

Use of Facebook Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). This function allows us to present users of this website with advertisements (“Facebook Ads”) when they visit the social network, Facebook. For this purpose, Facebook’s remarketing tag has been implemented on this website. Using this tag, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is created when you visit the website. The Facebook server is informed that a visit has been made to the website. Facebook then assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account. Further information on gathering and usage of the data by Facebook as well as related rights and options to protect privacy can be found at Alternatively, the Remarketing function “Custom Audiences” can be deactivated.
