This website uses the Google Maps API, a map service of Google Inc. ("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 and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties, if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible that Google could at least identify individual users on the basis of the data received. It is possible that Google processes personal information and personality profiles of users of the website for other purposes that we have no control over. This and the fact that data is transmitted to the US is problematic concerning data protection reasons.

You can easily deactivate the service of Google Maps and thus prevent the data transfer to Google: Disable JavaScript in your browser. Although we point out that you can not use the map display in this case.

By using this website and not deactivating the JavaScript function, you explicitly declare that you agree with the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose stated above.
