This website uses the Google Maps API, a mapping service of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), to display an interactive map. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

 

Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible for Google to identify at least individual users on the basis of the data received. It would be possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the website could be processed by Google for other purposes over which we have and can have no influence.

By using the integrated Twitter feed, the following data can be transmitted to the social media providers: IP address, browser information, operating system, screen resolution, installed browser plug-ins such as Adobe Flash Player, previous website if you followed a link (referrer), the URL of the current website, etc. If you click the Twitter “tweet button” while logged in to your Twitter account, you can link the content of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate visits to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. If you do not want Twitter to be able to link your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter user account. For further information, please refer to the Twitter privacy policy (https://twitter.com/privacy)
