Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”), on our website. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the United States.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization function on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymized.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
In addition, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about your website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For more information about the opt-out option provided by Google and how to opt-in, please see the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Use of facebook components
We use components of the provider facebook.com on our page. Facebook is a service of facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Each time you visit our website that is equipped with such a component, the component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding display of the facebook component. This process tells facebook which specific page of our website you are currently visiting.
When you visit our site while logged into facebook, facebook uses the information collected by the component to identify which specific page you are visiting and associates that information with your personal account on facebook. If, for example, you click on the “Like” button or make comments, this information is transferred to your personal user account on facebook and stored there. In addition, the information that you have visited our site is passed on to facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click on the component or not.
Use of Instagram
To prevent Instagram from associating your visit to our site with your Instagram account, you must log out of your Instagram account before visiting our site.
Embedded Vimeo videos
We also use videos from the company Vimeo on our website. The video portal is operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. With the help of a plug-in, we can show you interesting video material directly on our website. Certain data may be transferred from you to Vimeo in the process. Information on the standard contractual clauses at Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy#international_data_transfers_and_certain_user_rights.
Embedded YouTube videos
On our website, we use components (videos) of the company YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company of Google Inc, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Here, we use the option ” – extended data protection mode – ” provided by YouTube.
When you call up a page that has an embedded video, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser.
According to YouTube’s information, only data is transmitted to the YouTube server in “- extended data protection mode -“, in particular which of our Internet pages you have visited when you watch the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information is assigned to your member account on YouTube. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. Further information on YouTube’s data protection is provided by Google under the following link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Use of Google Maps
We use the component “Google Maps” of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”, on our site.
Google sets a cookie each time the “Google Maps” component is called up in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the “Google Maps” component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close your browser, but expires after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thus prevent the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you cannot use “Google Maps” or can only use it to a limited extent.
