Use of Google Maps

We use the map service “Google Maps” of the company Google Ireland Limited on our site. The business address of Google Ireland Limited: Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (Google). The parent company of Google Ireland Limited is Google LLC (registered office: 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

The service is used by embedding an element to display the map on our site by integrating an external map display.

By using this technology, personal data is transmitted to the service provider as described below.

The maps are integrated on our website in such a way that no personal data is transferred to Google unless you have given your consent to the use of this service.

When you display the maps from Google, Google processes your personal data (e.g. your IP address, location data of your device, sensor data from your device, WLAN access points, etc.) in accordance with its own privacy policy, which you can access at the following link: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de. As part of the integration of the maps, cookies are used by the service provider Google.

Such data collection by Google may also occur for visitors to this website who have consented to the use of Google Maps and who are not logged in or registered with Google. Google generally uses and processes the data of the users of the service for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside Google that correspond to the presumed interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer, in which the user’s usage behavior and interests are stored.

Cookies are small text files that are sent to your browser and stored on the data carrier of your device. These cookies enable the service provider Google to match your user data (e.g. URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties (user agent) and timestamp) with the data of your Google account, if any.

Furthermore, the usage profiles may also store data independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users have a Google account and are logged in on the Google site).

The data collected by Google is anonymous and not visible to us as users of the service. This data is only used by Google for the purposes described in Google’s privacy policy, e.g. for the placement of advertisements. Insofar as statistics are made available to us as service users by Google, these statistics do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual users. Information about personal data can therefore only be requested directly from Google. For our part, we can only view the public information of the users, which has been defined by the respective Google user in the private account settings. The registered users also have the option to adjust settings regarding Google Maps usage.

In the event that you are a registered Google user and have logged in to the Google site, your data will be automatically assigned to your user account by Google when you visit our site, provided that you have consented to the use of Google Maps.

More detailed information on the possible account settings regarding the Google Maps service can be found under the following link: https://myactivity.google.com/?continue=https://myactivity.google.com/product/maps?hl%253Dde%2526utm_source%253Dmaps.

In particular, if you do not have a Google account, you can also prevent cookies from being set by configuring your browser to refuse all cookies. In this case, however, the functionalities on this and other websites may be restricted.

Insofar as cookies are used by Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, these are described by Google in a detailed table, which you can access at the following link:

https://policies.google.com/technologies/types

The legal basis for the use of the Google Maps service is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) DS-GVO.

As far as the collected data regarding the user activities are transmitted to the USA by the service provider Google, the transmission is also based on your consent according to Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO in conjunction with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO.

Google Ireland Limited or its parent company Google Ireland Limited is the sole responsible party for the processing of personal data in connection with Google Maps. Further information about the processing of personal data by Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de.

If you use the map service and have our maps displayed, Google processes personal data in order to provide us with anonymized evaluations. We do not receive any personal data from you, but only have access to the aggregated content. Even though we have no influence on the type and scope of the processing of your personal data by Google, this processing of personal data takes place within the scope of joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 DS-GVO. The processing serves the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO to obtain information about the relevant data for the use of the map service.

In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, it is pointed out that these can most effectively be asserted directly against Google, because only Google has access to the data of users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information.

Please note that personal data is also processed by Google in the USA.

Traffic analysis Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics tool on our website, which is offered and operated by the company Google LLC.

The business address of Google LLC: 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The imprint of Google LLC with further information can be found at the following link: https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/+/policy/imprint.html.

The business address of the responsible service provider in the EU is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The imprint of Google Ireland Limited with further information can be found under the following link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/contact/impressum.html.

We only use this tool if you have consented to the use of this service.

The Google Analytics tool is used to analyze how you use our websites (web analysis service).

In order to be able to perform the analyses and ensure the functioning of the tool, we have implemented the code that ensures the functioning of Google Analytics on our website that you visit.

On our behalf, Google will use the information collected on the website to evaluate your (basically pseudonymous) use of the website and to compile reports on website activities. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website.

In addition, Google Analytics is used to analyze the success of our marketing campaigns.

We use the User ID (user identifier) function, which allows us to assign a unique, permanent ID (identifier) to one or more sessions (and the activities within those sessions) and thus analyze user behavior across devices.

We use the Google Signals feature, which collects additional information about users who have activated personalized ads (interests and demographics). This allows ads to be delivered to these users in cross-device remarketing campaigns.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies to analyze your use of our websites. Cookies are small text files that are sent to your browser and stored on the data carrier of your device.

To protect your privacy, we anonymize the IP addresses that are transmitted to Google by using the function ‘anonymizeIP’ (so-called IP masking): Due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

As a processor, Google Ireland Limited processes your personal data on our behalf. For this purpose, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Google pursuant to Art. 28 DS-GVO. Within the scope of the commissioned processing, Google is authorized to commission subcontractors. A list of approved subcontractors can be found at: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/subprocessors/. In addition to Google LLC, which is based in the USA, US authorities may also have access to the data stored by Google.

Insofar as cookies are used as part of the use of Google Analytics, these are described in detail by Google.

General information on the cookies used can be found at: https://policies.google.com/technologies/types?hl=de.

Detailed information on the cookies used, in particular with regard to the personal data processed in this context, the storage period of the individual cookies and their purposes can be found at:
https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage?hl=de

To learn more about Google’s privacy policy in general, you can access this policy at the following link:
https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de#infocollect

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) DS-GVO. Your consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future by changing the cookie settings under the following link:

Change cookie settings

You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website by not giving your consent to the setting of the relevant cookie or by installing the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. This is available at:

Insofar as the collected data regarding user activities are transmitted by Google Ireland Limited to Google LLC (parent company in the USA), the transmission also takes place on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 49 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO in conjunction with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.
