<h4>Cookies</h4>
This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user friendliness and security of this website. Common browsers offer a setting option to prohibit cookies.

<h4>Handling of personal data</h4>
The operator of the website collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if legally permitted or if you have consented to the collection of your data. Personal data is all information which is used to identify you as a person and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

<h4>Handling of contact data</h4>
If you contact the operator of the website using the available contact options, your information will be saved so that it can be used to process and answer your inquiry. This data is not passed on to third parties without your consent. Rights of the user: right to obtain information, right to correction and right to deletion. As a user, you have the right to obtain – free of cost – information as to which of your personal data has been stored upon request. If your wishes do not conflict with any legal obligations to store data (e.g., telecommunications data retention), you have a right to the correction of incorrect data and the blocking or deletion of your personal data.

<h4>Contact form</h4>
You can contact us with questions or suggestions at any time using a contact form. To answer your questions or provide you with feedback, we require the following information: last name, first name, address and e-mail address. We use this data only for the abovementioned purposes.

<h4>Use of social media plug-ins</h4>
This website uses Facebook social media plug-ins operated by Facebook Inc. (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). This can be seen by the integration of the Facebook logo and buttons with the terms „Like“ or „Share“ in the colours of the Facebook brand (blue and white). Information on all Facebook plug-ins can be found at the following link: <a href=“https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/>https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/</a>

The plug-in informs Facebook Inc. that you have visited this website as a user. In the process, it is possible that your IP address will be saved. If you are logged in to your Facebook account while visiting this website, the abovementioned information will be linked to your account. If you use the functions of the plug-in – by sharing or „liking“ an article, for example – the corresponding information will also be sent to Facebook Inc.
If you would like to prevent Facebook Inc. from linking this data to your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting this website.

<h4>Google Maps</h4>
Google Maps (third-party offering) is integrated into this website. Google Maps is used to display maps. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: third-party provider). The third-party provider requires the IP address of the users of the website as they are otherwise unable to send the content (maps) to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of the maps in the browser of the respective user. Through the use of Google Maps, information regarding the use of the offering, especially the IP address, is sent to a server of Google in the United States and saved there if pertinent. If you do not consent to this processing of your data, you can deactivate the Google Maps service, thereby preventing data from being sent to Google. For this purpose, the JavaScript function in your browser must be deactivated. Please note, however, that you will be able to use Google Maps not at all or only limitedly in this case. Additional information on the processing of data by Google can be found in the privacy policy of Google under: <a href=“http://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en</a>.
