Our company and our Service Provider use technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data you provide to us from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.

Unencrypted data can possibly be viewed by third parties. For this reason, we would like to point out that no secure transmission can be guaranteed with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by unencrypted e-mail). Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (SSL). You can determine the SSL status of the connection by looking at the address line of your browser ("https").

Google Maps

This website uses "Google Maps", an online mapping service provided by Google LLC ("Google"). Website: https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform

Insofar as you activate and agree to Google Maps through the 2-click solution (additional activation click) on the corresponding sub-page, you thereby also consent to your personal data being transmitted to the USA when Google Maps is used. The USA is an insecure third country in which there is no level of data protection comparable to EU standards. In the case of certain providers, such as Google, no other guarantees are offered to compensate for this deficit. There is therefore a risk that government agencies may access your personal data through the transfer without providing you with effective legal protection. To use Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google's servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to the browser and integrated into the website by the browser. The data storage takes place on the web servers of Google Maps. We can only inform you about this but cannot influence it.

We have no knowledge of the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. The processed data may include in particular the IP addresses and other metadata, including data about the browser, the terminal device and also the date and time of the visit to our website, as well as the input data in the search query for the map.
However, location data cannot be collected without consent (usually through the settings on the end device).

The integration of Google Maps in this website is done via the programming interface "Google Maps API - Maps JavaScript API (V3)" (Application Programming Interface). After activation and consent to the use of Google Maps through the 2-click solution, we set a cookie that stores your consent to the exchange of data with Google Maps.

The purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in Google's data protection information: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
