Privacy Policy for the use of Google Maps

We use Google Maps to display maps. The integration requires that Google can perceive the IP address of the users. The IP address is required to send the content to the user's browser.

Please check the privacy policy of Google before using our website.

Social Plug-ins

By integrating social plug-ins from Facebook, Twitter and Google+, they receive the information that a user with a specific IP address is currently visiting our website. If you are logged in at the same time as Facebook, for example, the visit to our website can be assigned to your Facebook account. This will also show your friends in this plugin. The purpose and extent of data collection, the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and privacy settings, can be read and changed in the privacy policy of Facebook. For the Like (Facebook) and + 1 (Google) buttons - which you can find under our pages - we have set up a two-step solution: To be able to press "like" or "+1" on a page, first click on the button and activate it; Only then will a connection be established with the Facebook or Google servers and you can recommend the post to your friends with a second click.

Facebook Plug-ins (Like-Button)

On our pages, plug-ins of the social network Facebook, provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, are integrated. The Facebook plug-ins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the "Like-Button" ("Like") on our site. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here:
When you visit our pages, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like-Button" while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our pages to your Facebook profile. As a result, Facebook can assign the visit to our pages to your user account.

Recommending Individual Content on Social Platforms

On individual subpages there is a recommendation function for social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Behind this recommendation function we have installed the privacy-friendly, two-stage Heise solution. If you access a page of our website, we will not be able to connect to the servers of that network. Only after clicking on the recommendation function will certain data be forwarded to the foreign web server of the social network. This includes, for example, the internet address you are currently visiting, as well as an identifier associated with your person if you are a user of such a social platform. Social platforms can thereby create surf profiles of their users. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save your IP address. If you are currently logged into the social network and you activate the recommendation function, the visit to our website will be assigned directly to your social platform user account. However, before you can use the referral feature, you will be reminded of the consequences and you must confirm that you consent to the forwarding of the designated data. The exact purpose and extent of the data collection through the social networks and the further use of your data, as well as possible adjustment options regarding your user account can also be found in the privacy policy of the respective networks.

SSL Encryption

You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change of the address line of the browser from "http: //" to "https: //" and the lock symbol in your browser line. If TLS Encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
