Route planner

We use Google Maps on our website to provide you with an interactive route planner. If you use these services you accept the terms of Google Maps (https://maps.google.com/help/terms_maps.html). In case you use the map, for instance by clicking one of our office locations we do not collect any data. However, Google might collect personal data. We cannot influence what data Google collects with Google Maps and how they process and analyse that data.

Use of Facebook-Plugins

On our website we use plugins of the social media platform facebook.com (“Facebook” – Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). When you open websites with such a plugin from our website a link is made to the Facebook servers and shows the plugin of the website via browser. Through this the facebook server gets the information on which websites you have visited. If you are at the same time logged in to Facebook as a member, facebook will assign these information to your personal user account. If you use plugin features (e.g. clicking the Like-button, commenting on a post or article), these information will also be assigned to your Facebook user account. You can avoid this only by logging out before using the plugins.
You will find further information on how Facebook is collecting and analysing data as well as information about your rights and ways to protect your privacy in Facebook’s data protection information.
