15. Analysing tools and Social Media
Cookies and similar technology are very small text documents or codes that often contain an unambiguous identification code. When you visit a website or use a mobile application, a computer asks your computer or your mobile device for permission to save this data file on your computer or mobile device in order to gain access to information. Information that is collected by cookies or similar technology could include the date and time of day of visit as well as the way you use a certain website or mobile device.
You can decide upon any cookies apart from the necessary ones. You can change the settings in your browser setting to block cookies. Most browsers offer an explanation of what to do in their “Help Function”. Should you block cookies, however, it is possible that you may not be able to use all technical functions on our website and that this may have a negative effect on your experience on this website.
Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR is the legal basis for processing personal data by using cookies. Our legitimate interest is to guarantee and optimise the functionality and usability of the website.
We use the following types of cookies for our website:
Necessary cookies: These cookies are needed for the website to function appropriately.
Performance cookies: These cookies are used to collect statistical information on the use of our website and are used to increase the performance and to optimise the website.

In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address.
This information is transmitted as a rule to a Google server in the United States and saved there. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transfer. Using Google Maps is done in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and also to facilitate finding the places mentioned on our website. This is a legitimate interest in terms of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.
15.5 Google Tag Manager
For transparency reasons we point out that we use Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a product by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S. (“Google”), which enables us to manage the website tags of applications such as Google Analytics via an interface. The Tag Manager is a non-cookie domain and does not record personal data. You can find more information on Google Tag Manager under https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
15.6 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of the Member States of the European Union or other parties of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be first transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing them with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address that your browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. There is a possibility to object to a web analysis by Google Analytics, by setting an “Opt out” cookie that instructs Google not to save or use your data for the purpose of web analysis. Please remember that, with this solution, the web analysis does not work as long as the “Opt out” cookie is saved by the browser. If you want to set the “Opt out” cookie now, click on https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable
You can also prevent the cookies from being saved by setting your browser software accordingly.

Recipient of data: Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
15.7 YouTube with extended data protection
Our website uses plug-ins on the YouTube website. Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, operates this site.
We use YouTube with an extended data-protection mode. According to YouTube this mode prevents YouTube from saving information about visitors to this website prior to viewing the video. However, passing data on to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by this extended data protection mode. In this way YouTube builds up a connection to the Google DoubleClick network, irrespective of whether you view the video or not.
As soon as you start watching a YouTube video on our website, YouTube connects to the servers. In this way the YouTube server is informed about which of our sites you have visited.
Once you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on our end device once you start watching a video. By means of these cookies YouTube receives information of visitors of our website. This information is used to record video statistics, improve user friendliness, prevent fraud, and more. The cookies remain on your end device until you delete them.
It is also possible that further data processing is triggered once you view a YouTube video, which we cannot influence.
Data processed by: Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland
Recipient of data: Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.
Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland
15.8 Social Media Links
We use social media and networks. Videos are distributed via YouTube, current messages via Facebook and Instagram (Social Media). We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, so as a rule we refrain from directly implementing social plug-ins on Facebook. We only make links available on our websites to these social networks. By selecting the relevant links, data is transferred to the relevant provider.
May we point out in particular that Facebook, Instagram and YouTube save their users’ data (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) in accordance with their guidelines of handling the use of data and use it for commercial purposes. We do not know how the social networks raise and process data.
The relevant provider is subsequently responsible for maintaining the relevant data protection regulations also regarding that the information for data processing made available there is correct, up-to-date and complete as per Art. 4 Para. and 17 GDPR.
16. Data security
We maintain a wide array of safety measures as per Art. 32 GDPR (technical and organisational measures) to protect your personal data.
On our website we offer you SSL/TLS encoding with the current encoding protocol TLS v1.2 for a secure transfer of data that you give us. May we point out that the extensive encoding of the transmission path also depends on your Internet browser. We therefore recommend that you keep your Internet browser up-to-date so that an encoding via TLS v1.2 can be built up automatically once you visit our website.
Should you contact us via email, we cannot guarantee that the transmitted information will be kept confidential. The content of emails may be read by third parties under certain circumstances. We therefore recommend that you allow us to have confidential information by surface mail or via an https-encoded contact form.
