    • for other administrative purposes.

    The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.

    • you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,

  4. Cookies

    We use cookies on our site. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do no damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. Information is stored in the cookie that results in each case in connection with the specifically used terminal device. However, this does not mean that we immediately become aware of your identity.

    The use of cookies is intended on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These will be deleted automatically after leaving our site.

    In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a specified period of time to optimize user-friendliness. If you visit our site again to use our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been here and what entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

    On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for you for the purpose of optimising our offer (see Section 5). These cookies enable us to automatically recognize when you return to our site that you have already been with us. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

  5. Embedding Google Services

    We use the services of Google Maps on our site. This gives you convenient access to interactive maps. Google Maps is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter only called "Google".

If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for its own purposes. You can find the Google Maps Terms of Use under "Google Maps Terms of Use. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

    We also use Google Fonts to display external fonts on our website. In order for certain fonts to be displayed on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed.

    The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the economic operation and optimization of our Internet presence. Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the display of the font is to be transmitted.
