(1) We use on our website the offer of “Google Maps”, an online map service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4 (“Google”). This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allow you to conveniently use the map function. The Google Maps map function or the Google Maps API (interface) are integrated on our website by means of “two-click solution”. This means that the map function is disabled first, and you need to activate the interface with one click. (Art. 6 (1) (a)) GDPR). Only with a subsequent second click will the selected map be displayed and possibly personal data transmitted to Google.

If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising. In this respect, Google acts as the controller (jointly with us) (Art. 26 GDPR).

D. Social Media and fan pages

We operate websites on online platforms and social networks in order to interact with potential or existing customers, to exchange information with interested parties and users, or to advertise offers and services. We operate our websites under joint responsibility (under data protection law) with the providers. We process data that you directly share or publish via the online platforms and networks (e.g. comment and chat function) as the responsible party in order to interact with you or to exchange information with you. In the context of this interaction, we may also receive statistical data from the platform operators on the use of our “channels and fan pages”. This includes, for example, information about interactions, likes, comments or summarised information and statistics (e.g. IP address; origin of followers) that help us to learn about the interaction with our site. The legal basis for data processing in our area of responsibility is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR. However, the providers also process data under their own responsibility. We have no influence on data processed by the provider under their own responsibility in accordance with their own terms of use and data protection conditions. We would like to point out that when you access the aforementioned providers, additional data (e.g. your usage and “surfing behaviour”) may be collected and possibly transmitted to the provider. Please also note that in the event of interaction via the aforementioned media, data may also be processed outside the area of the European Union. Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. You can find more detailed information on this in the data protection information of the respective providers. Insofar as we have personal data from you in connection with the use of the online platforms and networks, please address your concerns to us. Should you wish to assert any further rights against a specific provider, please contact the provider in question.
