This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google
Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043,
USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on
your computer and make it possible to analyze your use of the website. In
general, the information about your use of this website generated by this
cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP
anonymization has been activated on this website, meaning that Google will abbreviate,
and thus create a pseudonym for your IP address within member states of the
European Union as well as in other states within the European Economic Area
which are a party to the agreement. As a consequence, only very general
localization is possible. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address
first transmitted to a server of Google in the USA, where it is then shortened.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to
analyze use of the website, compile reports about website activity, as well as
provide the website operator with further information about use of the website
and the Internet.
Data is processed in accordance with the
legal provisions of § 96 par. 3 TKG as well as art. 6 par. 1 lit a (consent) and/or
f (legitimate interest) of DSGVO.
Our interest consistent with DSGVO (legitimate
interest) is the improvement of our offer and our web presence. Since the
private realm of our users is important to us, user data is associated with a
pseudonym as described above.

Analytics is not compiled with other data from Google. You can prevent storage
of cookies by making appropriate changes to the settings of your browser
software; however, we wish to point out that, if you choose to do so, you might
not be able to use all of the functions of this website to the full extent.
Furthermore, you can prevent data generated by the cookie pertaining to your
use of this website (including your IP address) from being transmitted to
Google as well as being processed by Google simply by downloading the following
browser plugin and installing
respective Google pages. You should also be aware that this website uses the
Google Analytics code that automatically anonymizes IP addresses and thus
guarantees anonymous compilation of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
By means of IP masking, any personally identifiable
information will no longer be processed. Nonetheless, we have entered into a
contract with the provider to process information pertinent to our business
matters. Our relationship with this web analysis provider is commensurate with
the resolution entered into between the European Commission and the USA: known
as the “EU-US Privacy Shield”.

The plug-in we use from Google is based on a 2-click system. When you open a website, only a placeholder is loaded for YouTube videos and no actual connection is made automatically to YouTube itself. This connection is only initiated when you click on the appropriate button to view the video. In order to enable you to view the video, the website uses a plug-in from the Google-owned service YouTube. The operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you are also logged into your YouTube account while visiting our website, whenever you play a video you also allow YouTube to associate your surfing behaviors with your personal profile. However, you can prevent this from happening by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
When you view the video, a connection is made to the servers of YouTube. This simultaneously informs the YouTube server which of our pages you are visiting and have already visited.
We integrate the maps of the work “OpenStreetMap” https://www.openstreetmap.org, which are offered on the basis of the Open Data Commons Open Database license (ODbL) by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF). Data protection declaration of the OSMF.
As far as we know, the data of the users are used by OpenStreetMap exclusively for the purpose of displaying the map functions and temporarily storing the selected settings. This data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually carried out as part of the settings of their mobile devices).
The Google Tag Manager is a system that controls which and when tags (scripts) are executed on the website.
This can be e.g. Google Analytics, which the Google Tag Manager can use to generate statistics on user behavior on the website. The Google Tag Manager works with tags and triggers.
However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data and does not set any cookies itself. If cookies have been deactivated via the data protection settings, this also applies to those cookies that were implemented via tags with the Google Tag Manager.

To measure our conversion rates, our website uses the visitor activity pixel of Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). This tool allows the tracking of page visitors after they have been linked to the website of the provider after clicking on a Facebook ad. This makes it possible to analyse the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and to optimize future advertising campaigns.

However, Facebook archives the information and processes it, so that it is possible to make a connection to the respective user profile and Facebook is in a position to use the data for its own promotional purposes in compliance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. This enables Facebook to display ads on Facebook pages as well as in locations outside of Facebook. We as the operator of this website have no control over the use of such data.
The use of Facebook Pixel is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in effective advertising campaigns, which also include social media.
