6. Which third-party-connections do exist?
To ensure a comfortable use of our website and for statistical analysis we use several third-party-services. This may result in transmission of data from our website to the provider of the service.
6.1 Google Analytics
Google uses this information in order to analyze the usage of our website. Google will generate reports about user activities on our website and the processed data may be used to make pseudonymized user profiles.
We use GA solely in Anonymize-IP-Mode. This means, your IP-address will be shortened when you visit our website from within the European Union or from another country of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the whole IPaddress will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened afterwards.
Your IP-address will not be combined with other data from Google. You can set your browser to reject cookies in general. By clicking here http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de you can install a browser plugin that prevents being tracked by GA.
Legal basis of processing your personal data in this context is Art. 6 p. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR (your consent via cookie banner).

6.2 Google Maps
For the purpose of localizing our property and our headquarter we embed the web mapping service Google Maps. This service is also offered by Google. The use of Google Maps establishes a connection to a Googler Server in the USA.

6.3 Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager to bundle the data streams on this website. The Tag Manager itself neither collects nor saves any data. It is just transmitting the data to different web analytics tools like GA and Google AdWords.
6.4 Google Ads
We also use the Google Ads remarketing functions, an online advertising platform by Google. Thereby we can show you our properties and services on other websites within the Google Advertising Network. Your interaction on our website is recorded so we can display information about our properties and services you already showed interest in.
Google sets a cookie to identify a user. This cookie is not used to identify you as a person.

6.5 Open Street Map
We embedded „OpenStreetMap“ on this website. A web mapping service provided by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) on basis of the Open Data Commons Open Database License https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.
Your data is used only for the purpose of displaying the map and saving your settings. Normally this data is your location and your IP address. Your data may possibly be processed in the USA.
