Privacy Statement :
We have drawn up this data protection declaration (version 25.01.2021-321254416) in order to provide you with information in accordance with the requirements of the
Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (EU) 2016/679 explain what information we collect, how we use information and what choices 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
Nowadays, when you visit websites, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
When you visit our website as you are doing right now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as
- the address (URL) of the accessed website
- Browser and browser version
- The operating system used
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which access is being made
- Date and Time
in files (web server log files).
As a rule, web server log files are stored for a fortnight and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful behaviour.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
What exactly are Cookies ?
Whenever you browse the internet, you use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser transmits the „user-related“ information back to our site. Thanks to the cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual default setting. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file; in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie is to be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiry time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programmes and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other „pests“. Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.
Cookie data, for example, can look like this:
- Name: _ga
- Expiry time: 2 years
- Use: Differentiation of website visitors
- Exemplary value: GA1.2.1326744211.152321254416
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
- A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
- At least 50 cookies should be able to be stored per domain
- A total of at least 3000 cookies should be able to be stored
What are the different types of cookies ?
One can distinguish between 4 types of cookies:
Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure the basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and later goes to the checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.
These cookies collect information about user behaviour and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies are also used to measure the loading time and the behaviour of the website with different browsers.
Diese Cookies sorgen für eine bessere Nutzerfreundlichkeit. Beispielsweise werden eingegebene Standorte, Schriftgrößen oder Formulardaten gespeichert.
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to deliver individually adapted advertising to the user. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.
Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you are asked which of these cookie types you would like to allow. And of course, this decision is also stored in a cookie.
How can I delete cookies ?
If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
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. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. The best thing to do is to search for the instructions in Google with the search term „Delete Cookies Chrome“ or „Deactivate Cookies Chrome“ in the case of a Chrome browser or replace the word „Chrome“ with the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
What about my data protection ?
The so-called „Cookie Guidelines“ have been in place since 2009. These state that the storage of cookies requires your consent. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these directives. In Germany, the Cookie Directives have not been implemented as national law. Instead, this directive was largely implemented in § 15 para.3 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
If you want to know more about cookies and don’t shy away from technical documentation, we recommend
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, dem Request for Comments der Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) namens „HTTP State Management Mechanism“.
Storage of personal data
Personal information that you submit to us electronically on this website, such as your name, email address, address or other personal details when submitting a form or commenting on the blog, together with the time and IP address, will only be used by us for the purpose stated, kept secure and not passed on to third parties.
We therefore only use your personal data for communicating with those visitors who expressly wish to be contacted and for processing the services and products offered on this website. We do not disclose your personal data without your consent, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be accessed in the event of unlawful conduct.
If you send us personal data by e-mail – thus away from this website – we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data by e-mail without encryption.
The legal basis exists according to
Artikel 6 Absatz 1 a DSGVO (lawfulness of processing) in that you give us consent to process the data you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time – an informal e-mail is sufficient, you will find our contact details in the imprint.
Rights under the General Data Protection Regulation
According to the provisions of the GDPR, you are generally entitled to the following rights:
- Right of rectification (Article 16 GDPR)
- Right to erasure („right to be forgotten“) (Article17 DSGVO)
- Right to restrict processing (Article 18 DSGVO)
- Right to notification – obligation to notify in connection with the rectification or erasure of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 DSGVO)
- Right to data portability (Article 20 DSGVO)

Evaluation of visitor behaviour
In the following data protection declaration, we inform you whether and how we evaluate data from your visit to this website. The evaluation of the collected data is generally anonymous and we cannot draw any conclusions about your person from your behaviour on this website.
You can find out more about how to object to this analysis of visit data in the following data protection declaration.
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data securely over the Internet (data protection through technology design). Article 25 Paragraph 1 DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognise the use of this data transmission protection by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our internet address.
We use Google Maps from Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. Google Maps enables us to 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 servers. Here we would like to go into more detail about what Google Maps is, why we use this Google service, what data is stored and how you can prevent this.
What is Google Maps ?
Google Maps is an internet mapping service provided by Google. With Google Maps you can search for exact locations of cities, sights, accommodation or businesses online via a PC, tablet or app. If companies are represented on Google My Business, further information about the company is displayed in addition to the location. 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 street map or as an aerial or satellite image. Thanks to the Street View images and the high-quality satellite images, very accurate representations are possible.
Why do we use Google Maps on our website ?
All our efforts on this site 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 about various locations. You can see at a glance where we are located. The directions always show you the best or fastest way to reach us. You can call up the directions for routes by car, public transport, on foot or by bicycle. For us, providing Google Maps is part of our customer service.
What data is stored by Google Maps ?
In order for Google Maps to be able to offer its service in full, the company must collect and store data from you. This includes, among other things, the search terms entered, your IP address and also the latitude and longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the start address entered is also stored. However, this data storage happens on the Google Maps websites. We can only inform you about this, but cannot influence it. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google sets at least one cookie (name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behaviour. Google uses this data primarily to optimise its own services and to provide you with individual, personalised advertising.
The following cookie is set in your browser due to the integration of Google Maps:
NID is used by Google to customise advertisements to your Google searches. With the help of the cookie, Google „remembers“ your most frequently entered search queries or your previous interaction with ads. This way you will always get tailored ads. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect your personal preferences for advertising purposes.
Expiry date: after 6 months
Note: We cannot guarantee the completeness of the data stored. Especially when using cookies, changes can never be ruled out. 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 ?
Google servers are located in data centres around the world. However, most servers are located in America. For this reason, your data is also increasingly stored in the USA. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centres are located:
Google distributes the data on different data carriers. This means that the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against any attempts at manipulation. Each data centre also has special emergency programmes. If, for example, there are problems with Google’s hardware or a natural disaster brings the servers to a standstill, the data will pretty much remain protected anyway.
Google stores some data for a set period of time. For other data, Google only offers the option to delete it manually. Furthermore, the company also anonymises 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 of location and activity data introduced in 2019, location and web/app activity information will be stored for either 3 or 18 months – depending on your decision – and then deleted. In addition, you can also manually delete this data from your history at any time via your Google Account. If you want to completely prevent your location tracking, you must pause the „Web and App Activity“ section in the Google Account. Click „Data and personalisation“ and then on the „Activity setting“ option. Here you can switch the activities on or off.
You can also deactivate, delete or manage individual cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you use, this always works slightly differently. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:
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. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not.
Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which governs the accurate and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at
What is OpenStreetMap ?
The OpenStreetMap project was launched in 2004. The aim of the project is and was to create a free map of the world. Users collect data worldwide about buildings, forests, rivers and roads. Over the years, an extensive digital map of the world has been created by users themselves. Of course, the map is not complete, but in most regions it contains a lot of data.
Why do we use OpenStreetMap on our website ?
Our website should first and foremost be helpful to you. And from our point of view, it is always helpful when you can find information quickly and easily. On the one hand, of course, it is about our services and products, but on the other hand, you should also have access to other helpful information. That’s why we also use the map service OpenStreetMap. Because this way we can show you, for example, exactly how to find our company. The map shows you the best way to us and your journey becomes child’s play.
What data is stored by OpenStreetMap ?
The data collected is subsequently accessible to the relevant working groups of the OpenStreetMap Foundation. According to the company, personal data is not shared with other individuals or companies unless legally necessary. The third-party provider Piwik does store your IP address, but in shortened form.
The following cookie may be set in your browser when you interact with OpenStreetMap on our website:
Intended use: Das Cookie wird benötigt, um die Inhalte von OpenStreetMap zu entsperren.

The API servers, databases and ancillary services servers are currently located in the United Kingdom (Great Britain and Northern Ireland) and the Netherlands. Your IP address and user information, which is stored in shortened form by the web analytics tool Piwik, is deleted after 180 days.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage ?
You have the right to access your personal data and object to its use and processing at any time. You can manage, delete or deactivate cookies that may be set by OpenStreetMap in your browser at any time. However, this will prevent the service from functioning to its full extent. For each browser, managing, deleting or disabling cookies works slightly differently. Below you will find links to the instructions for the most popular browsers:
