4. cookies
So-called cookies are used on the website. These are data packets that are exchanged between the server of the company's website and the visitor's browser. These are stored when visiting the website by the devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.). In this respect, cookies cannot cause any damage to the devices used. In particular, they do not contain viruses or other malware. Information is stored in the cookies that results in each case in connection with the specifically used terminal device. Under no circumstances can the company obtain direct knowledge of the identity of the visitor to the website.
Cookies are largely accepted according to the basic browser settings. The browser settings can be set so that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used or that a special message is displayed before a new cookie is created. However, it should be noted that the deactivation of cookies may result in not all functions of the website being used in the best possible way.
The use of cookies serves to make the use of the company's website more comfortable. For example, session cookies can be used to determine whether the visitor has already visited individual pages of the website. After leaving the website, these session cookies are automatically deleted.
Temporary cookies are used to improve user-friendliness. They are stored on the visitor's device for a temporary period of time. When the website is visited again, it is automatically recognized that the visitor has already visited the page at an earlier point in time and which entries and settings were made in order not to have to repeat them.
Cookies are also used to analyze calls to the website for statistical purposes and to improve the service. These cookies make it possible to recognize automatically with a renewed visit that the web page was already called up before by the visitor. Here, cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time.
The data processed by cookies are justified for the above-mentioned purposes in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of the Registry pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO.

5. Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

6. use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors. For more information about Google's data processing, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy (https://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html). There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the Data Protection Center.
Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here: (http://www.detaliberation.org).

7. your rights as affected person
If your personal data are processed during your visit to our website, you as the "data subject" are entitled to the following rights within the meaning of the DSGVO:
7.1 Information
You may request information from us as to whether your personal data is processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information would violate the duty of confidentiality pursuant to § 83 StBerG or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular because of a predominant legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interest in confidentiality, especially taking into account impending damages. Furthermore, the right to information is excluded if the data are only stored because they may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or exclusively serve purposes of data protection or data protection control, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organisational measures. If in your case the right to information is not excluded and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:
purposes of processing,
categories of personal data processed by you,
recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,
if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period,
the existence of a right to rectification, deletion or limitation of the processing of personal data concerning you or of a right of opposition to such processing,
the existence of a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority,
if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information on the origin of the data,
the existence of automated decision making, including profiling and meaningful information on the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended effects of automated decision making,
if necessary, in case of transfers to recipients in third countries, unless the EU Commission has decided on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 DSGVO, information on the appropriate guarantees provided for the protection of personal data pursuant to Art. 46 para. 2 DSGVO.

7.2 Correction and completion
If you find that we have incorrect personal data from you, you can ask us to correct this incorrect data immediately. In case of incomplete personal data concerning you, you may request the completion.

7.3 Deletion
You have a right to cancellation ("right to be forgotten"), provided that the processing is not necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression, the right to information or to fulfil a legal obligation or to perform a task which is in the public interest and one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
The basis of justification for the processing was exclusively your consent, which you have revoked.
You have objected to the processing of your personal data, which we have made public.
You have objected to the processing of personal data not made public by us and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing.
Your personal data have been processed unlawfully.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no claim for deletion if in case of legal, non-automated data processing due to the special type of storage deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of deletion.

7.4 Limitation of processing
You may request us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:
You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction may be required for the duration that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
The processing is unlawful and instead of deletion you request the restriction of the use of your personal data.
We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO. The restriction of processing may be required as long as it is not yet clear whether our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.
Restriction of processing means that personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

7.5 Data transferability
You have a right to transferability of data, provided that the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a) DSGVO) or on a contract to which you are a contracting party and the processing is carried out using automated procedures. In this case, the right to data transfer includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons: You can ask us to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to pass this data on to another person responsible without hindrance on our part. If technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another person responsible.

7.6 Opposition
If the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter e) DSGVO (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest of the person responsible or a third party), you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for reasons arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Article 6(1), first sentence, letter e) or letter f) of the DSGVO. After exercising the right of objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You may at any time object to the processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling in connection with such direct advertising. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.
You have the option of informing our company informally of your objection by telephone, e-mail, fax or to the postal address listed at the beginning of this Privacy Statement.

7.7 Revocation of consent
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of the consent can be communicated informally by telephone, by e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address. The legality of the data processing, which is based on the consent until receipt of the revocation, is not affected by the revocation. After receipt of the revocation the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, is stopped.

7.8 Complaint
If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority responsible for the place of your stay or work or for the place of the alleged infringement. A list of supervisory authorities and their addresses can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/addresses_links_node.html
