§ 8 Use of Google Maps

(1) We use Google Maps on this website. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”). This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to conveniently use the map function.

This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account.
If you do not want it to be assigned to your Google profile, you must log out of Google before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website according to market requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide appropriate advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you must contact Google to exercise them.

§ 9 Use of Google AdWords

(1) Our website uses Google conversion tracking. The services of Google AdWords are provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. If you arrived at our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords will place a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google.
If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords clients. The information obtained using the conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. Clients are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users.

(2) Your consent is the legal basis for the integration of Google AdWords and the associated data transfer to Google (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR).

(3) Every time you visit our website, personal data, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA. This personal data is stored by Google. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.
Our company holds no information from Google that could be used to identify the individual concerned.

(4) These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification.

(5) Google processes your data in the USA and is subject to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(6) If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can reject the cookie required for this – for example, by changing your browser settings to generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or setting your browser so that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.
Please note that if you do not want measurement data to be recorded, you must not delete the opt-out cookies. If you have deleted all of your cookies in the browser, you have to set the respective opt-out cookie.

(7) Your personal data is provided voluntarily, solely on the basis of your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in functional limitations on the website.

§ 11 Objection to the processing of your data

(1) If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation affects the legitimacy of the processing of your personal data, once you have made the request.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if, in particular, the processing is not required to fulfil a contract with you, which is described by us in each case in the following description of functions. In the event of such a revocation, we shall ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the case of a justified objection, we will examine the situation and will either discontinue or adapt the data processing or inform you of our compelling legitimate reasons with which we continue the processing.
