When you visit our website,, information is automatically sent to our website’s server by the browser (computer program for displaying web pages on the Internet) used on your end device (e.g., cell phone, tablet, PC). These pieces of information are stored for a specific period in a file known as a “log file.”

The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which the access was made,

This data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR. The necessary legitimate interest in data processing on our part follows from the purposes of data collection listed above.

4. cookies/Google Maps/Google Analytics/Google Ads/Bing Ads

We use cookies on our website. This is data that your browser automatically creates and that is stored on your terminal device when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any harm and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not give us direct knowledge of your identity and we do not combine the information in the cookie with other data.

The use of cookies serves, among other things, to make the use of our website more pleasant for you. The so-called session cookies can recognize that you have previously visited specific pages on our website. These session cookies are automatically deleted after you leave our site.

We also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness, which are stored on your terminal device for a certain period of time. When you visit our website again, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us once and which entries and settings you have made. This way we avoid that you have to enter these inputs and settings again.

Furthermore, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These cookies allow us to automatically recognize that you have already been with us when you visit our site again. These cookies are also automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies are necessary for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legal interests as well as those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DS-GVO required.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is created. However, we would like to point out that the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.

Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps to create route maps.

Google Maps is also operated by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; the contact address in the EU area is Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, 4, Ireland. Data is collected when using the Maps functions. By using the “Directions” function, you consent to the collection, processing, and use of the data automatically collected and, where applicable, additionally entered by you by Google or one of its representatives. You have the option to object to this use by deactivating the JavaScript function in your browser. However, you can no longer use the map display in this case.

The terms of use for Google Maps can be found at

Google Analytics

On our website we use the analysis tool Google Analytics of the US-American Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google) for the needs-based design and optimization of our website offers. Under the terms of the commissioned data agreement that we have concluded with Google, Google uses the information collected to create an evaluation of the use and activities on our website. Note: Such an agreement is to be concluded by the homepage operator


For this purpose, so-called tracking cookies are stored on your device. The information generated by these cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information transmitted is then used on our behalf to evaluate the use of our website and to provide us with further services for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of this website. Your IP address and cookie identifier are processed.

On this website, Google Analytics has been extended by an anonymization code to ensure that IP addresses are only recorded anonymously and to exclude a direct reference to persons (so-called IP masking). When Google transmits your IP address within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address is therefore shortened beforehand (IP masking) and only transmitted in anonymized form to the USA and stored there. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. The data collected from you will therefore not be used to identify you personally and will not be merged with any personal data about you.

You have the following options to prevent the analysis by Google Analytics: You can object at any time to the collection of the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and to the processing of this data by Google for the future by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: The web analysis remains deactivated when the browser plug-in is installed until this browser plug-in is deactivated or deleted. The browser plug-in must be set separately for each browser and device. That is, if you do not want web analytics on other devices or different browsers that you use, you must add the browser plug-in on all browsers and devices that you use to access our website.

We have also integrated Google Analytics on our site in such a way that you can directly prevent the processing of your user data by Google Analytics for the future from your end device via a so-called opt-out cookie from Google Analytics. In the following area you can see an overview of the currently set cookies with the respective opt-out option. If you want to stop the analysis for other end devices you use, you have to activate the opt-out cookie again for each device.

For details on the purpose and scope of data processing, collection and use on the part of GoogleAnalytics, please refer to the terms of use and data protection notices of Google at: and Google Analytics at:

The use of Google Analytics analysis cookies is intended to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimize our offer.

Google Analytics is an online service of the US company Google Inc. located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics Privacy Information:,,,

The data processed by Google Analytics is automatically deleted after 26 months.

The legal basis for the data processing associated with the use of Google Analytics through the cookies used in this process is your voluntarily given consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a) DS-GVO.

The provision of personal data to Google is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the described processing of data, it is not possible to analyze and evaluate the use of our website and optimize the services we offer.


We have integrated Google Ads on this website. Google Ads is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google’s search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google Ads allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google’s search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of the Google Ads services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Ads is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertisements on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertisements on our website.

If a data subject accesses our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored by Google on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages on our website have been accessed, provided that the cookie has not yet expired. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a data subject who has accessed our website via an Ads ad has generated a sale, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods. Need for clarification: What information is tracked on practice homepages. As a rule, this is not about generating sales. This would have to be specified differently!

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via Google Ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective Google ad and to optimize our Ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google Ads receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.

By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, such as the web pages visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Ads can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link from any of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.
