Introduction and overview
We have written this privacy statement (version 16.06.2021-111763510) in order to explain to you, in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and applicable national laws, which personal data (data for short) we as the controller - and the processors (e.g. providers) commissioned by us - process, will process in the future and what lawful options you have. The terms used are to be understood as gender-neutral.
In short, we inform you comprehensively about data we process about you.
Privacy statements usually sound very technical and use legal terminology. This privacy statement, on the other hand, is intended to describe the most important things to you as simply and transparently as possible. To the extent that it is conducive to transparency, technical terms are explained in a reader-friendly manner, links to further information are provided and graphics are used. In this way, we inform you in clear and simple language that we only process personal data in the course of our business activities if there is a corresponding legal basis. This is certainly not possible by providing the most concise, unclear and legalistic explanations possible, as is often standard practice on the Internet when it comes to data protection. I hope you find the following explanations interesting and informative, and perhaps there is one or two pieces of information that you did not yet know.
If you still have questions, we would like to ask you to contact the responsible party named below or in the imprint, to follow the links provided and to look at further information on third-party sites. Our contact details can of course also be found in the imprint.
Scope of application
This data protection declaration applies to all personal data processed by us in the company and to all personal data processed by companies commissioned by us (order processors). By personal data, we mean information within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO, such as a person's name, e-mail address and postal address. The processing of personal data ensures that we can offer and invoice our services and products, whether online or offline. The scope of this privacy policy includes:
all online presences (websites, online stores) that we operate
social media presences and email communications
mobile apps for smartphones and other devices
In short, the data protection declaration applies to all areas in which personal data is processed in the company via the aforementioned channels in a structured manner. If we enter into legal relationships with you outside of these channels, we will inform you separately as appropriate.
Legal basis
The so-called "Cookie Guidelines" have been in place since 2009. These state that the storage of cookies requires your consent (Article 6 (1) a DSGVO). Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these directives. In Austria, however, this directive was implemented in Section 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG). In Germany, the Cookie Directives were not implemented as national law. Instead, the implementation of this directive took place largely in § 15 para.3 of the Telemedia Act (TMG).

For absolutely necessary cookies, even if there is no consent. there are legitimate interests (Article 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), which in most cases are of an economic nature. We want to provide visitors to the website with a pleasant user experience and for this purpose certain cookies are often absolutely necessary.

Insofar as cookies that are not absolutely necessary are used, this is only done in the case of your consent. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

In the following sections, you will be informed in more detail about the use of cookies, insofar as software used uses cookies.

What is YouTube?
We have incorporated YouTube videos on our website. This allows us to present interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you call up a page on our website that has a YouTube video embedded, your browser automatically connects to the YouTube or Google servers. In the process, various data are transferred (depending on the settings). Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in the European area.

In the following, we would like to explain in more detail which data is processed, why we have integrated YouTube videos and how you can manage or delete your data.

On YouTube, users can watch, rate, comment on and upload videos themselves free of charge. Over the last few years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels in the world. In order for us to display videos on our website, YouTube provides a code snippet that we have included on our site.

Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?
YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We are committed to providing you with the best possible user experience on our website. And of course, interesting videos can't be missing from that. With the help of our embedded videos, we provide you with other helpful content in addition to our text and images. In addition, the embedded videos make our website easier to find on the Google search engine. Also, when we run ads through Google Ads, Google - thanks to the data it collects - can really only show these ads to people who are interested in what we have to offer.

What data is stored by YouTube?
As soon as you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube video embedded, YouTube sets at least one cookie that stores your IP address and our URL. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can usually assign your interactions on our website to your profile using cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution or your internet provider. Other data may include contact details, any ratings, sharing content via social media or adding to your favorites on YouTube. If you are not logged into a Google account or a YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier associated with your device, browser, or app. For example, your preferred language setting is retained. But a lot of interaction data can't be stored because fewer cookies are set. In the following list, we show cookies that were set in a test in the browser. On the one hand, we show cookies that are set without a logged-in YouTube account. On the other hand, we show cookies that are set with a logged-in account. The list cannot claim to be complete, because the user data always depends on the interactions on YouTube.

How long and where is the data stored?
The data that YouTube receives from you and processes is stored on Google servers. Most of these servers are located in America. You can see exactly where Google data centers are located at https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de. Your data is distributed across the servers. Thus, the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against manipulation.

Google stores the collected data for different lengths of time. Some data you can delete at any time, others are automatically deleted after a limited time, and still others are stored by Google for a longer period of time. Some data (such as items from "My Activity", photos or documents, products) stored in your Google Account will remain stored until you delete it. Even if you are not signed into a Google Account, you can delete some data associated with your device, browser, or app.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
Basically, you can delete data in Google Account manually. With the automatic deletion feature of location and activity data introduced in 2019, information will be stored depending on your decision - either 3 or 18 months and then deleted.

Whether you have a Google account or not, you can configure your browser to delete or disable cookies from Google. Depending on which browser you use, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome.

Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari.

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

Internet Explorer: delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: delete and manage cookies

If you generally don't want cookies, you can set your browser to notify you whenever a cookie is about to be set. This way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not. Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, there is a common privacy policy. If you want to learn more about how your data is handled, we recommend the privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Legal basis
If you have consented that data from you can be processed and stored by embedded YouTube elements, this consent is considered the legal basis for data processing (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). In principle, your data will also be stored and processed on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) in fast and good communication with you or other customers and business partners. Nevertheless, we only use the embedded YouTube elements if you have given your consent. YouTube also sets cookies in your browser to store data. That is why we recommend that you read our privacy text about cookies carefully and view the privacy policy or cookie policy of the respective service provider.

Wie lange und wo werden die Daten gespeichert?
Die Daten, die YouTube von Ihnen erhĂ€lt und verarbeitet, werden auf Google-Servern gespeichert. Die meisten dieser Server befinden sich in Amerika. Wo genau sich die Google-Rechenzentren befinden, kannst du unter https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de sehen. Ihre Daten werden auf die Server verteilt. So können die Daten schneller abgerufen werden und sind besser vor Manipulationen geschĂŒtzt.

Google speichert die gesammelten Daten unterschiedlich lange. Einige Daten können Sie jederzeit löschen, andere werden nach einer bestimmten Zeit automatisch gelöscht und wieder andere werden von Google ĂŒber einen lĂ€ngeren Zeitraum gespeichert. Einige in Ihrem Google-Konto gespeicherte Daten (z. B. Elemente aus "Meine AktivitĂ€ten", Fotos oder Dokumente, Produkte) bleiben gespeichert, bis Sie sie löschen. Auch wenn Sie nicht in einem Google-Konto angemeldet sind, können Sie einige Daten löschen, die mit Ihrem GerĂ€t, Browser oder Ihrer App verbunden sind.

Wie kann ich meine Daten löschen oder die Datenspeicherung verhindern?
GrundsĂ€tzlich können Sie Daten im Google-Konto manuell löschen. Mit der 2019 eingefĂŒhrten automatischen Löschfunktion von Standort- und AktivitĂ€tsdaten werden die Informationen je nach Ihrer Entscheidung entweder 3 oder 18 Monate gespeichert und dann gelöscht.

UnabhÀngig davon, ob Sie ein Google-Konto haben oder nicht, können Sie Ihren Browser so konfigurieren, dass Cookies von Google gelöscht oder deaktiviert werden. Je nachdem, welchen Browser Sie verwenden, funktioniert dies auf unterschiedliche Weise. Die folgenden Anweisungen zeigen Ihnen, wie Sie Cookies in Ihrem Browser verwalten können:

Chrome: Löschen, Aktivieren und Verwalten von Cookies in Chrome.
Safari: Verwalten Sie Cookies und Websitedaten mit Safari.
Firefox: Cookies löschen, um Daten zu entfernen, die Websites auf Ihrem Computer abgelegt haben
Internet Explorer: Löschen und Verwalten von Cookies
Microsoft Edge: Löschen und Verwalten von Cookies

Wenn Sie generell keine Cookies wĂŒnschen, können Sie Ihren Browser so einstellen, dass er Sie benachrichtigt, wenn ein Cookie gesetzt werden soll. Auf diese Weise können Sie fĂŒr jedes einzelne Cookie entscheiden, ob Sie es zulassen oder nicht. Da YouTube eine Tochtergesellschaft von Google ist, gibt es eine gemeinsame Datenschutzrichtlinie. Wenn Sie mehr darĂŒber erfahren möchten, wie Ihre Daten behandelt werden, empfehlen wir Ihnen die Datenschutzbestimmungen unter https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Rechtsgrundlage
Wenn Sie eingewilligt haben, dass Daten von Ihnen durch eingebettete YouTube-Elemente verarbeitet und gespeichert werden dĂŒrfen, gilt diese Einwilligung als Rechtsgrundlage fĂŒr die Datenverarbeitung (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO). GrundsĂ€tzlich werden Ihre Daten auch auf der Grundlage unseres berechtigten Interesses (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO) an einer schnellen und guten Kommunikation mit Ihnen oder anderen Kunden und GeschĂ€ftspartnern gespeichert und verarbeitet. Wir nutzen die eingebetteten YouTube-Elemente jedoch nur, wenn Sie uns Ihre Einwilligung gegeben haben. Auch YouTube setzt Cookies in Ihrem Browser, um Daten zu speichern. Wir empfehlen Ihnen daher, unseren Datenschutztext zu Cookies sorgfĂ€ltig zu lesen und die Datenschutz- bzw. Cookie-Richtlinie des jeweiligen Dienstanbieters einzusehen.

Google Maps Privacy Policy
Google Maps Privacy Policy Summary

đŸ‘„ Data subjects: visitors to the website
đŸ€ Purpose: optimization of our service performance
📓 Data processed: Data such as search terms entered, your IP address and also latitude or longitude coordinates.

You can find more details about this further down in this privacy policy.

📅 Storage duration: depending on the stored data.
⚖ Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (Consent), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests).

What is Google Maps?
We use Google Maps from Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. Google Maps allows us to better show you locations and thus adapt our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers. Here we will now go into more detail about what Google Maps is, why we use this Google service, what data is stored and how you can prevent this.

Google Maps is an internet map service provided by the company Google. With Google Maps, you can search for exact locations of cities, sights, accommodations or businesses online via a PC, tablet or app. If companies are represented on Google My Business, other information about the company is displayed in addition to the location. To show how to get there, map sections of a location can be embedded in a website using HTML code. Google Maps shows the earth's surface as a street map or as an aerial or satellite image. Thanks to the Street View images and the high-quality satellite images, very accurate representations are possible.

Why do we use Google Maps on our website?
All our efforts on this site are aimed at providing you with a useful and meaningful time on our website. By integrating Google Maps we can provide you with the most important information about various locations. You can see at a glance where we are located. The directions always show you the best or fastest way to us. You can get the directions for routes by car, by public transport, on foot or by bike. For us, the provision of Google Maps is part of our customer service.

What data is stored by Google Maps?
In order for Google Maps to fully provide their service, the company must record and store data from you. This includes, among other things, the search terms entered, your IP address and also the latitude or longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the start address entered is also stored. However, this data storage happens on the websites of Google Maps. We can only inform you about this, but have no influence. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google sets at least one cookie (name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behavior. Google uses this data primarily to optimize its own services and to provide individual, personalized advertising for you.

The following cookie is set in your browser due to the integration of Google Maps:

Name: NID
Wert: 188=h26c1Ktha7fCQTx8rXgLyATyITJ111763510-5
Purpose: NID is used by Google to customize ads to your Google searches. With the help of the cookie, Google "remembers" your most frequently entered search queries or your previous interaction with ads. This way, you will always get tailored ads. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect your personal preferences for advertising purposes.
Expiration date: after 6 months

Note: We cannot guarantee completeness in the details of the stored data. Especially when using cookies, changes can never be excluded. In order to identify the cookie NID, a separate test page was created, where only Google Maps was integrated.

How long and where is the data stored?
Google servers are located in data centers all over the world. However, most servers are located in America. For this reason, your data is also increasingly stored in the USA. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de.

Google distributes the data on different data carriers. This means that the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against any attempts at manipulation. Each data center also has special emergency programs. For example, if there are problems with Google's hardware or a natural disaster cripples the servers, the data will pretty much remain protected anyway.

Google stores some data for a set period of time. For other data, Google only offers the option to delete it manually. Furthermore, the company also anonymizes information (such as advertising data) in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 and 18 months, respectively.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
With the automatic location and activity data deletion feature introduced in 2019, location and web/app activity information will be stored for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your decision, and then deleted. In addition, you can also manually delete this data from your history at any time via your Google account. If you want to completely prevent your location tracking, you need to pause the "Web and App Activity" section in Google Account. Click "Data and personalization" and then click the "Activity setting" option. Here you can turn the activities on or off.
In your browser, you can further disable, delete or manage individual cookies. Depending on which browser you use, this always works slightly differently. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome.
Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari.
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer
Internet Explorer: delete and manage cookies
Microsoft Edge: delete and manage cookies

If you generally don't want cookies, you can set your browser to notify you whenever a cookie is about to be set. This way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether to allow it or not.
Please note that when using this tool, data from you may also be stored and processed outside the EU. Most third countries (including the USA) are not considered secure under current European data protection law. Data to insecure third countries may therefore not simply be transferred, stored and processed there unless there are suitable safeguards (such as EU standard contractual clauses) between us and the non-European service provider.

Legal basis
If you have consented to Google Maps being used, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as may occur during the collection by Google Maps. From our side, there is also a legitimate interest in using Google Maps to optimize our online service. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests). Nevertheless, we only use Google Maps if you have given your consent.

If you would like to learn more about Google's data processing, we recommend that you read the company's in-house privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.
