In addition to this, to uphold our legitimate interests we store these data for a limited period in order to be able to trace cases of unlawful access or attempts to access the local server to particular personal data (Article 6 (1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation).

2. Website Tracking

This Website uses so-called cookies. The purpose of these is to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser and which permit the analysis of your use of the Website. You can prevent cookies from being saved to your device by using the relevant setting in your browser software. However, please note that you may not be able to make full use of all this website’s features if you deactivate cookies.

We collect, process and use the information you provide via the contact form exclusively to deal with your specific concern. We will not share any information with third parties.

4. Use of Google Maps

On our site we use the component Google Maps, by the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as Google. Each time you access the Google Maps component, Google creates a cookie in order to process user settings and data when displaying the page into which the Google Maps component is integrated. As a rule these cookies are not deleted when you close your browsers, rather expiring after a set time unless you delete them manually prior to that. If you do not consent to this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the Google Maps service, thereby preventing the transmission of data to Google. For the purpose you will have to deactivate the Javascript function in your browser. However, please note that in that event you will either be unable to use Google Maps or will only be able to do so to a limited extent. The use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps takes place on Google's terms and conditions of use.

5. External services and content on our Website

We integrate external services and content into our Website. If you use any such service or if you view third-party content, for technical reasons communication data are exchanged between you and the provider concerned.

Moreover, the provider of those services or content may use your data for other purposes of its own. To the best of our knowledge and ability we have configured the services or content of providers who are known to process data for their own purposes in such a way that communication for purposes other than the display of content or services on our Website is either prevented or such communication only takes place if you actively decide to use the service. However, as we have no influence on the data collected by third parties or the processing thereof, we cannot make any binding statements about the purpose and extent of said processing of your data.

Accordingly, please seek further information on the purpose and extent of the collection and processing of your data from the privacy notices of the providers responsible under data protection law for the services or content we have integrated.

6. Forwarding data for processing on our behalf

Wherever our processing involves the disclosure of data to other persons or undertakings (processors or third parties), or the transmission of data to said parties or otherwise granting them access to the data, this only takes place on the basis of statutory permission (e.g., if the transmission of the data to third parties pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 point b of the GDPR is necessary for performance of a contract), if you have consented to it, if a legal obligation to do so exists or if necessary to uphold our legitimate interests (e.g., when using [data protection] officers, web hosters, etc.).

If we mandate third parties to process data on the basis of a processing contract, this takes place pursuant to Article 28 GDPR.

If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)), or this occurs in connection with the availment of third-party services or due to the disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this takes place only when necessary for the fulfilment of our (pre)contractual obligations, with your consent, in compliance with a legal obligation or in order to uphold our legitimate interests. Subject to statutory or contractual permission, we process data or mandate its processing in a third country only where the specific provisions of Article 44 ff. GDPR are satisfied. That is, the processing takes place, for instance, on the basis of special guarantees such as the official acknowledgement of a level of data protection corresponding to EU requirements (e.g., the Privacy Shield in the USA) or of compliance with officially acknowledged special contractual obligations (so-called standard contractual clauses).
