Cookies & Google Analytics

We use functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics to improve and optimize our website. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Cookies are used for this purpose, which enable an analysis of the use of the website by your users. The information generated in this way is transferred to the provider's server and stored there.

Cookies are text files that are stored on the user's computer and enable an analysis of the user's use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We use cookies to make our website user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

We have activated "_anonymizeIp()" for the website; with this extension, IP addresses are shortened to prevent direct personal contact and only rough localization is possible: By IP anonymization on this website, the IP address of a Google user within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area is shortened beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use the information collected in the course of the use of Google Analytics as a service provider for us to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by a user's browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. By using our website, the user agrees to the use of the data collected about him in the manner and for the purpose described above.

If you do not wish this to happen, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases.

When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Social Plugins

It may happen that social plugins (e.g. share, like buttons) of the following social networks are used on pages of our website:

-, operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Privacy Policy:

-, operated by Twitter, Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. Privacy Policy:

- google+, operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy:

-, operated by Pinterest Inc. 635 High Street, Palo Alto, CA 94301, USA. Privacy Policy:

These plugins are marked with the logo of the corresponding social network.


Data transfer through social plugins

When a user registered in a social network and currently logged in accesses our website containing such a plugin, the user's browser establishes a direct connection to the social network servers via cookies set by the social network and the plugin on our website. Social networks may also use the plugin to detect that a logged in user is on our website without clicking on the plugin.

By integrating the plugins, the social network operator receives the information that the user has called up the corresponding site. If the user interacts with social plugins, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from his browser to the operator of the social network and stored there.

Integration of third-party services and content

It can happen that within our online offer contents or services of third providers, such as city maps or fonts of other websites are integrated. The integration of third-party providers' content always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, as they would not be able to send the content to the users' browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of the third-party content can set their own cookies and process the user's data for their own purposes. The processed data can be used to create user profiles. We will use this content in a data-saving and data-avoiding manner as far as possible and select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following is an overview of third-party providers and their contents, together with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and possibilities of objection:

External fonts from Google, Inc, ("Google Fonts"). The integration of the Google Fonts takes place via a server call with Google (usually in the USA).
