Cookies enable our systems to recognise the user's device and make any preferences immediately available. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard disk of the respective user's computer. Cookies help us to improve our website and to provide you with a better service tailored to your needs. They enable us to recognise your computer when you return to our website and thereby:

3.4     Integration of Google Maps
We use the Google Maps service on this website. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently. The
legal basis for the use of the maps is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the integration only takes place with your consent.
 By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the above-mentioned basic data such as IP address and timestamp are transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in line with requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
The information collected is stored on Google servers, including in the USA. For these cases, the provider has, according to its own information, imposed a standard on itself that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has promised to comply with applicable data protection laws in the international transfer of data. We have also agreed so-called standard data protection clauses with Google, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance with an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
 For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy:


4. Data security

All information you submit to us is stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our website via the Internet. However, we secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons by means of technical and organisational measures. In particular, we transmit your personal data in encrypted form. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) coding systems.


5. No disclosure of your personal data

We do not disclose your personal data to third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure of data or we are entitled or obliged to disclose data due to legitimate interest, legal provisions and/or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve the disclosure of information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.


6. Data protection and third party websites

The website may contain hyperlinks to and from third-party websites. If you follow a hyperlink to one of these websites, please note that we cannot accept any responsibility or warranty for third-party content or data protection conditions. Please make sure you are aware of the applicable data protection conditions before submitting personal data to these websites.


7. Our activities in the social networks

In the following, we inform you about the handling of your personal data, in particular about the use of our presences in social networks and offers.

Please check carefully what personal data you share with us via social networks. For example, as long as you are logged into your respective account and visit our profile operated by the providers, the provider can directly assign this to your profile. You are thus clearly identifiable for the provider.

Your visit history can thus be used to create a profile about you by the provider. We expressly point out that the providers store the data of their users (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) and may also use this data for business purposes.

Basically, we operate the pages and profiles in order to get in touch with customers, interested parties and employees as well as potential employees in a better and more convenient way. The past has shown us that our activities beyond the online presence in the form of a website lead to a significantly higher market penetration and thus contact opportunities. Therefore, we consider our activities in the social networks to be an essential factor for our business success. For the use of the services, we therefore refer to an explicit legitimate interest on our part (Article 6(1) lit. f). Through the use of our profile pages in the respective social networks, usage data is collected in addition to the personal data that you yourself provided to the provider when creating your access, and as a rule, the respective provider creates a personalised usage profile. However, this is not within our sphere of influence. Our activity only enables the provider to record that you were interested in our company and that you may like our contributions. Apart from the tracking carried out by the provider outside our sphere of influence, there are therefore knowingly no factors that would restrict your fundamental rights and freedoms and counteract our legitimate interest in using the aforementioned services. In the case of the aforementioned tracking (recording and evaluation of your user behaviour by the provider), we naturally also hope for a prompt clarification and creation of legal certainty.

Under the following link, you can efficiently have your browser configured to counteract the unwanted recording of your user behaviour, but probably not fully:
