3.1 YouTube and Google Maps
Our website may include videos from the external platform YouTube. The platform is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you call up a subpage containing YouTube videos while browsing our website, your browser will establish a direct connection with the YouTube servers. YouTube will transfer the video directly to your browser and incorporate it into the website. Consequently, we have no influence on the scope of the data captured by YouTube via this method.
Furthermore, our website also uses Google Maps on a number of subpages to display interactive maps and create route maps.
Google Maps is a cartographic service from Google Inc. (hereinafter referred to as: “Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. Using Google Maps may lead to the collection of certain personal information on the use of this website, including your IP address and the starting address used within the scope of the route planning function being transferred to Google in the USA.
If you call up a subpage that contains Google Maps while browsing our website, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Google servers. Google will transfer the map contents directly to your browser and incorporate them into the website. Consequently, we have no influence on the scope of the data captured by Google via this method.
You can find information on the purpose and extent of data acquisition as well as how the data is processed and used by YouTube and Google, together with your rights and optional settings to protect your privacy, in the data protection notes of YouTube/Google: www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.
3.2 Hyperlinks to external websites
Our website contains hyperlinks to external websites of other providers. When clicking on these links, you will be transferred from our website directly to that external website. The change in the URL is but one way you will recognize the transfer.
We cannot accept any responsibility for the handling of your data by these providers on such external websites, as we have no influence on how these providers treat your personal data. You should therefore directly consult the information contained in the privacy statement for the website of the respective provider.
4.1 Session cookies
We make use of what many people refer to as “session cookies” on our website. The purpose of these session cookies is to make visiting our website easier and more comfortable for you.
After you end the browser session, the cookies are deleted automatically.
4.2 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses session cookies, which are placed on your computer, to help us analyze how you use our site.
The information generated by the session cookies about your use of our website will generally be transmitted to and stored by servers operated by Google in the USA.
We employ Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “anonymizeIp” for IP anonymization, which ensures that your IP address is truncated by Google prior to transmission in order to prevent it from being linked to a particular individual. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
Google will employ this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity for us, and provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transferred by your browser while using Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the session cookies and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being captured and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
