Data protection

German version here

We have written this data protection declaration (version 30.07.2020-311199113) to explain to you in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 what information we collect, how we use data and what options you have as a visitor to this website .

Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.

Automatic data storage

When you visit websites these days, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.

If you visit our website as it is now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as

• the address (URL) of the website accessed

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).

Google Maps privacy policy

We use Google Maps from Google Inc. on our website. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With Google Maps we can better show you locations and thus adapt our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers. Here we want to go into more detail about what Google Maps is, why we use this Google service, which data is stored and how you can prevent this.

What is Google Maps

Google Maps is an internet map service from Google. With Google Maps you can search for exact locations of cities, attractions, accommodations or companies online using a PC, tablet or app. If companies are represented on Google My Business, additional information about the company is displayed in addition to the location. In order to show how to get there, map sections of a location can be integrated into a website using HTML code. Google Maps shows the earth's surface as a road map or as an aerial or satellite image. Thanks to the Street View images and the high-quality satellite images, very precise representations are possible.

Why do we use Google Maps on our website?

All of our efforts on this page are aimed at providing you with a useful and meaningful time on our website. By integrating Google Maps, we can provide you with the most important information on various locations. You can see at a glance where we are based. The route description always shows you the best or fastest way to us. You can find directions for routes by car, public transport, on foot or by bike. For us, the provision of Google Maps is part of our customer service.

Which data is saved by Google Maps?

In order for Google Maps to be able to offer its full service, the company must record and save data from you. This includes the search terms entered, your IP address and the latitude and longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the entered start address is also saved. However, this data storage happens on the Google Maps website. We can only inform you about this, but we cannot influence it. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google places at least one cookie (name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behavior. Google uses this data primarily to optimize its own services and to provide you with individual, personalized advertising.

The following cookie is set in your browser due to the integration of Google Maps:

Name: NID

Value: 188 = h26c1Ktha7fCQTx8rXgLyATyITJ311199113-5

Purpose: NID is used by Google to adapt advertisements to your Google search. With the help of the cookie, Google “remembers” your most frequently entered search queries or your previous interaction with ads. This way you always get customized advertisements. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect your personal settings for advertising purposes.

Expiry date: after 6 months

Note: We cannot guarantee that the data stored is complete. Changes can never be ruled out, especially when using cookies. In order to identify the NID cookie, a separate test page was created, where only Google Maps was integrated.

How long and where is the data stored?

The Google servers are located in data centers around the world. Most of the servers are in America, however. For this reason, your data is also increasingly stored in the USA. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

Google distributes the data on various data carriers. This means that the data can be accessed more quickly and is better protected against any attempts at manipulation. Each data center also has special emergency programs. If, for example, there are problems with the Google hardware or a natural disaster paralyzes the servers, the data will still remain protected.

Google stores some data for a specified period of time. For other data, Google only offers the option of manually deleting them. The company also anonymizes information (such as advertising data) in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 and 18 months, respectively.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

With the automatic deletion function of location and activity data introduced in 2019, information on location determination and web / app activity - depending on your decision - is stored for either 3 or 18 months and then deleted. You can also delete this data manually from the history at any time using your Google account. If you want to completely prevent your location from being recorded, you must pause the "Web and app activity" section in your Google account. Click Data & Personalization, then click the Activity Settings option. Here you can turn the activities on or off.

You can also deactivate, delete or manage individual cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you are using, this always works a little differently. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. You can decide for each individual cookie whether or not to allow it.

Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAIIf you want to find out more about data processing by Google, we recommend the company's own data protection declaration at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Google Fonts privacy policy

We use Google Fonts on our website. These are the “Google fonts” from Google Inc. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services.

You do not have to log in or enter a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested from the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you don't have to worry that your Google account details will be transmitted to Google while you are using Google Fonts. Google records the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. We will take a closer look at what the data storage looks like.

 

What are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory with over 800 fonts that Google makes available to its users free of charge.

Many of these fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.

Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website, but don't have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important component in keeping the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves data volume and is a great advantage, especially for use with mobile devices. When you visit our site, the small file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can partially distort texts or entire websites. Thanks to the fast content delivery network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all common browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online service as beautifully and uniformly as possible.

 

Which data is saved by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts are downloaded from a Google server. This external call transmits data to the Google server. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or your IP address are visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the use, storage and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for the proper provision of fonts. By the way, API stands for "Application Programming Interface" and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software area.

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is therefore protected. With the usage figures collected, Google can determine how well the individual fonts are being received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis sites such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts' BigQuery database. Entrepreneurs and developers use the Google BigQuery web service to examine and move large amounts of data.

It should be noted, however, that with every Google Font request information such as language settings, IP address, version of the browser, screen resolution of the browser and the name of the browser are automatically transmitted to the Google server. It is not clear whether this data is saved or not clearly communicated by Google.

 

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This enables us to use the fonts with the help of a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a format template that can be used to quickly and easily e.g. can change the design or font of a website.

The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google's goal is to fundamentally improve the loading time of websites. If millions of websites refer to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other websites visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. In order to be able to delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=311199113. In this case, you only prevent data storage if you are not visiting our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. We can therefore have unlimited access to a sea of ​​fonts and thus get the most out of our website. You can find more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=311199113. Although Google deals with data protection issues there, it does not contain really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really precise information about stored data from Google.

You can also read which data is generally recorded by Google and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

Google Fonts Local Privacy Policy

We use Google Fonts from Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. We have the google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server - not on Google's servers. This means that there is no connection to Google servers and therefore no data transmission or storage.

What are Google Fonts?

In the past, Google Fonts was also called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory with over 800 fonts that Google provides for free. With Google Fonts you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. But in order to prevent any information transfer to Google servers in this regard, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. In this way we act in compliance with data protection regulations and do not send any data to Google Fonts.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. We can therefore have unlimited access to a sea of ​​fonts and thus get the most out of our website. You can find more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=311199113.

 

OpenStreetMap privacy policy

We have integrated map sections from the online map tool "OpenStreetMap" on our website. This is a so-called open source mapping, which we can call up via an API (interface). This function is offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, St John's Innovation Center, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0WS, United Kingdom. By using this map function, your IP address will be forwarded to OpenStreetMap. In this data protection declaration you will find out why we use functions of the OpenStreetMap tool, where which data is stored and how you can prevent this data storage.

What is OpenStreetMap?

The OpenStreetMap project was launched in 2004. The aim of the project is and was to create a free world map. Users around the world collect data on buildings, forests, rivers and roads, for example. Over the years, an extensive digital map of the world was created by users. Of course the map is not complete, but in most regions it is equipped with a lot of data.

Why do we use OpenStreetMap on our website?

Our website is primarily intended to be helpful to you. From our point of view, this is always the case when information is found quickly and easily. On the one hand, this is about our services and products, on the other hand, you should also have other helpful information available. That is why we also use the OpenStreetMap map service. For example, we can show you exactly how to find our company. The map shows you the best route to us and your journey will be child's play.

 

What data is saved by OpenStreetMap?

When you visit one of our websites that OpenStreetMap offers, user data is transmitted to the service and stored there. OpenStreetMap collects information about your interactions with the digital map, your IP address, data on your browser, device type, operating system and on what day and at what time you used the service. Tracking software is also used to record user interactions. The company specifies the "Piwik" analysis tool in its own data protection declaration.

The data collected are then available to the relevant working groups of the OpenStreetMap Foundation. According to the company, personal data will not be passed on to other people or companies unless this is legally necessary. The third-party provider Piwik stores your IP address, but in a shortened form.

The following cookie can be set in your browser when you interact with OpenStreetMap on our website:

Name: _osm_location

Value: 9.63312% 7C52.41500% 7C17% 7CM

Purpose: The cookie is required to unlock the content of OpenStreetMap.

Purpose: This cookie is set by Piwik to store or measure user data such as click behavior.

Expiry date: after one year

 

How long and where is the data stored?

The API servers, databases and auxiliary services servers are currently located in the United Kingdom (Great Britain and Northern Ireland) and the Netherlands. Your IP address and user information, which are saved in abbreviated form by the Piwik web analysis tool, will be deleted after 180 days.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You have the right to access your personal data at any time and to object to its use and processing. Cookies that OpenStreetMap may set can be managed, deleted or deactivated in your browser at any time. As a result, however, the service will no longer function to its full extent. The management, deletion or deactivation of cookies works slightly differently for each browser. Below you will find links to the instructions for the most popular browsers:
