This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to create directions. Google Maps is a mapping service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the USA. When you call up a web page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. Therefore, we have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, this is at least the following data:
- Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
- Internet address or URL of the accessed web page,
- IP address, (start) address entered as part of route planning.

General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that do not provide a level of data protection comparable to the EU. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. Please note that in these countries, a level of data protection comparable to the EU cannot be guaranteed. For example, US companies are required to disclose personal data to security authorities without the possibility of legal recourse for the data subject. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (such as intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have given at any time. The lawfulness of data processing prior to revocation remains unaffected.
Right to object to data collection in certain cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller, where technically feasible.
Information, erasure, and rectification
Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing, and, if applicable, the right to rectification or erasure of such data. For this purpose, as well as for any other questions concerning personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time to exercise this right. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data that we have stored, we usually need time to verify this. During the verification period, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is done unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data but you need it for the exercise, defense, or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have objected pursuant to Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may – apart from their storage – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

5. Plugins and Tools
This site uses the Google Maps map service. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. If Google Maps is activated, Google may use Google Fonts for the purpose of displaying fonts uniformly. When you access Google Maps, your browser loads the necessary web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offerings and an easy location of the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/sccs/.
This website uses the "Google Analytics" service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), to analyze website usage by users. The service uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. As part of the agreement on the order data agreement, which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.
You have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you can access all features of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
