SSL Encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If the SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Right to information, deletion, blocking You have the right to receive information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data. For this as well as for further questions about
personal data you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Objection to advertising mails The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the transmission of not expressly requested advertising and information material is hereby objected to.

The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of
of advertising information, for example through spam e-mails.

Google Fonts

On our pages we use Google Fonts. These are fonts that can be loaded by your browser from the servers of Google. This is done without transmitting further data to Google apart from your IP address and the desired font.

This website uses Google Maps API, a map service of Google Inc. ("Google"), to display an interactive map and to create directions to the site. Google Maps is provided by

1600 Amphitheatre Parkway,
Mountain View,
CA 94043,

operated.

By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) can be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible for Google to identify at least individual users on the basis of the data received. It would be possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the website could be processed by Google for other purposes over which we have and can have no influence. You have the option of deactivating the Google Maps service and thus preventing data transfer to Google by disabling JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use the map display on our pages.

The Google Privacy Policy & Additional Terms of Use for Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.
