1. THE REASONS FOR DATA PROCESSING

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data are processed on our websites (for example name, address or e-mail addresses), this takes place, as far as possible, always on voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We collect and process your information to provide our website and to provide you with the best possible service through convenient access to our services.

2. WHICH DATA ARE COLLECTED, PROCESSED OR USED?

2.1 VISIT OF OUR WEBSITE

If you access our web pages, our servers automatically collect information of a general nature, in particular for the purpose of establishing a connection, functionality and system security.
This includes:

• The type of browser used,
• The operating system used,
• The domain name of the internet service provider (ISP),
• The connection data of the computer used (IP address),
• The website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL),
• The pages you visit on our website,
• As well as the date and duration of the visit.

These data may be stored in server log files. These log files are deleted after four weeks. Systemic access statistics are deactivated and are therefore not performed. These data are not combined with other data sources.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

2.2 CORRESPONDENCE

a) E-Mail or telephone correspondence

If you send us an E-Mail or contact us by telephone, your E-Mail address and the information provided to us via E-Mail/telephone will only be used for correspondence with you. After completion of the correspondence, your E-Mail address and the data communicated to us will be deleted and no other use or transfer to third parties will take place, unless an administrative procedure is initiated. If there are legal storage obligations to the contrary, the E-Mail correspondence and all data transmitted to us will not be deleted within the period of the storage obligation.

b) Use of our contact form

If you contact us via a contact form, personal data will be collected. The contact form clearly shows which data will be collected. The data will be stored for the purpose of processing your request. Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*). All other information is voluntary. We delete the data arising in connection with the contact form after the storage is no longer necessary, or limit the processing if legal retention obligation exist.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, if it concerns your contacting within the scope of a contract. Furthermore, it is in our legitimate interest to answer your inquiries, so that in this case Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR is the legal basis.

2.3 INTEGRATION OF GOOGLE MAPS

On this website we use the services of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to conveniently use the map function to create a route. By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, data volume transmitted in each case, website from which the request comes, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software are transmitted. This is regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in with or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation takes place in particular (even for unlogged-in users) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy:
http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy .
Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,
https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .
The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

3. ERASURE

Personal data will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply or you request erasure. The data will also be erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standard expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract or you have given your consent to this.
