Your IP address is recorded when you download a page with an integrated map from Google Maps. This information is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google learns the IP address that you used to log in, even if you do not have a user account. If you havelogged in to your user account, Google is able to attribute your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this if you log out first. The provider of this page does not influence this transmission of data.

This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) f GDPR.Details about handling of user data can be found in Google’s PrivacyPolicy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
10. Use of Google AdSense
In the interest of the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of ouronline offer, we use Google AdSense, a service of Google Inc.(https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA: hereinafter “Google”). Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
In this context, advertisements are displayed on our website, and we receive remuneration for displaying or otherwise using them. For these purposes, usage data, such as the click on an ad and the IP address of the users are processed, whereby the IP address is shortened by the last two digits. Therefore, the processing of the users’ data is pseudonymized.
We use AdSense with personalized ads. In doing so, Google draws conclusions about users’ interests based on the websites they visit or appsthey use, and the user profiles thus created. Advertisers use this information to tailor their campaigns to these interests, which benefits users and advertisers alike. For Google, ads are personalized when captured or known data determines or influences ad selection. This includes past search queries, activities, website visits, app usage, demographic, and location information, among others. Specifically, this includes demographic targeting, targeting on interest categories, remarketing, and targeting on customer matching lists and audience lists uploaded to DoubleClick Bid Manager or Campaign Manager.
The legal basis for the use of Google AdSense is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is based on the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our online offer.
11. Use of Google Analytics
Our website uses functions from web analysis service Google Analytics. The web analysis service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Article 6 (1) f GDPR. As this website’s operator, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour, to optimise our web offering and advertising as applicable.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation function.It ensures that Google abbreviates your IP address within EU Member States or in other states that are party to the European Economic Area treaty before transmission of your IP address to the USA. In some cases, however, Google may transmit the full IP address to a server in the USA and abbreviate it there. Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, to generate reports about website activities and to provide us with other services associated with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies being placed by your web browser. This may, however, restrict some of our website’s functions. You can also prevent data about your website use, including your IP address, being collected, and subsequently processed by Google. This can be done by downloading and installing the browser plugin via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
We have concluded an agreement with Google concerning processing to meet statutory data protection regulations in full.
Our website uses Google Analytics’ ‘Demographics’ feature. It generates reports containing information about the age, gender, and interests of website visitors. This data is generated by Google’s interest-related advertising and obtained from visitor data from Third-Party Providers. It is not possible to attribute data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this via the advertising settings in your Google account, or by generally prohibiting collection of your data by Google Analytics as explained under ‘Object to data collection’.

The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. We will ensure that data processing takes place in Germany only. This is required to operate the website and to substantiate, execute and implement the existing licence agreement and is also possible without your consent. Yourdata may also be forwarded if, due to statutory provisions and/or official orcourt orders, we are authorised or obliged to forward data. In particular, this may be a question of provision of information for the purposes of prosecution, to avert risks, or to enforce intellectual property rights.
If your data is forwarded to service providers to the extent necessary, theyhave access to your personal data only insofar as is necessary for fulfilment of their duties. These service providers are obliged to handle your personal details in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the GDPR.
Over and above these circumstances, in principle we do not transmit your data to third parties without your consent. In particular, we do not pass personal data on to an agency in a third country or to an international organisation.
15. Data security
Unfortunately, transmission of data via the internet is never 100% secure, which is why we are unable to guarantee security of the data transmitted to our website via the internet.
We use technical and organisational measures, however, to secure our website against loss, destruction, access, modification, or dissemination ofyour data by unauthorised persons.
In particular, we transfer your personal data in encrypted form. We use theSSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) coding system.We continually improve our security measures in accordance with technological developments.
16. Duration of personal data storage
Regarding storage duration, we erase personal data as soon as we no longer need to store it to fulfil the original purpose and all statutory periods of retention have elapsed. The statutory periods of retention ultimately are the criterion for the final duration of personal data storage. The corresponding data is routinely erased after the period has expired. Data processing is restricted by blocking the data if statutory retention periods must be observed.
