This website uses Google Maps to display maps and to generate directions. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

We run a company profile on the social network Facebook. Facebook is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. On this Facebook Page, we want to interact with our customers, prospects, and users and share information on our services. In accordance with Article 26, Paragraph 1 of the GDPR, we are joint controllers together with Facebook for the processing of data collected from a visit to our Page. The resulting obligations are specified in the Page Insights Controller Addendum, which is a mutual arrangement between Facebook and us. This arrangement can be viewed here:https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum
Facebook provides us with aggregated data (known as “Facebook Insights”) so that we can analyze how you have engaged with our Page. These Insights do not contain any personal data. As operators of the Page, we have no access to personal data. We cannot view or retrieve the information gathered during your visit to Facebook. We cannot identify individuals from the data available to us, and we do not create profiles of individual users.
We use user statistics to optimize our Page for various purposes, including improving the customer experience, market research, and advertising. Cookies are placed on the user’s computer to enable the analysis of statistics. According to Facebook, these cookies are only used to identify you and improve your browsing experience on the Page. Facebook states that it will delete or anonymize cookies and cookie information within 90 days. To our knowledge, entries on the local computers of non-Facebook members will not be made.
We process your personal data collected in connection with a visit to our Facebook Page for the purpose of legitimate interests (Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit f GDPR) to be able to effectively inform users and communicate with you. However, data is also processed outside the EU or the EEA, in particular on Facebook servers in the US. This creates additional data protection risks. In the US, the enforcement of the rights of data subjects is considerably more complicated. Nevertheless, data transfers to the US are subject to the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250, also known as the EU–US Privacy Shield. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield framework and is obligated to provide an adequate level of protection. If data is transferred to the US in joint responsibility with Facebook, this is done on the basis of Article 45 GDPR.
Our mutual arrangement with Facebook states that Facebook agrees to take primary responsibility for the processing of Insights Data. Facebook therefore agrees to take primary responsibility to comply with all applicable obligations under the GDPR with respect to the processing of Insights Data, including, but not limited to, Articles 13 and 14 GDPR, and assumes primary responsibility for safeguarding your rights as a data subject. Requests for information and the assertion of other data subject rights can be obtained most quickly from Facebook itself, as only Facebook has access to user data, as described above. We advise users of our Facebook Page to visit https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy to exercise their rights according to Article 12 GDPR, the right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR, the right to restrict processing under Article 18 GDPR, the right to object to processing under Article 21 GDPR, and the right of access under Article 15 GDPR. If you require any help, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact details published on this page.

Due to the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has called the corresponding page, even if you do not have a profile with the respective provider or are not currently logged in to the service of the respective provider. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider, if necessary to the USA, and stored there.
If you are logged in to one of the services of the providers, the providers can directly assign the visit of our website to your profile/account of the respective provider. If you interact with the plugins, for example the "like" button, the "+ 1" button or the "tweet" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information is also published on the social network or on your social media account and is displayed in your contacts. The purpose of the data collection and the further processing of the data by the providers as well as your respective rights and settings for the protection of your privacy can be consulted in the data protection information of the providers:
If you do not want the providers to assign the data collected via our website directly to your profile/account in the respective service, you must log out of the corresponding service before activating the plugins.
