These data cannot be related to specific persons and will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data at a later time, if any concrete evidence of an unlawful use comes to our attention.
Use of Google Maps
Our website uses the “Google Maps” service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter called “Google”.
With every single use of the “Google Maps” feature a cookie is placed to process the user settings and data when the page that integrates “Google Maps” is displayed. This cookie will normally not be deleted when you close the browser, but it will expire after a certain period of time, if you don’t delete it manually before expiry.
If you do not agree to the processing of your data, you can deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thus prevent the data transmission to Google. For this purpose, you need to deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. Please note that in this case your use of “Google Maps” will be impossible or limited.
and the general terms and conditions of “Google Maps”:
For reasons of security and in order to protect confidential data, such as enquiries that you send us, we use SSL encryption. You can recognise encrypted connections by the change from “http://” to “https://” in the URL field of your browser and the displayed lock symbol. If the SSL encryption is activated, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties.
