On the page of the contact form there is a plugin which shows a map of Google Maps. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (country) maps in order to display geographical information visually of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Using this service will show you our location and make it easier for you to find us.

This is done by connecting your browser to Google’s servers as if you were visiting the Google search engine’s website. If you are logged into Google, your information will be directly linked to your account. If you do not wish to be linked to your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google is responsible for data processing by Google. There is no tracking by Google on our website.

If you do not agree to the future transfer of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, it is also possible to completely deactivate the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and therefore also the map display on this website can then not be used.
