Other data uses and data deletion
Further processing or use of your personal data will generally only take place if permitted by law or if you have consented to data processing or use. In the event of further processing for purposes other than those for which the data were originally collected, we will inform you of these other purposes prior to further processing and provide you with further relevant information.
Social Media Accounts
We would like to point out that you use the social network and platform services offered and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating etc.). The data collected about you in this context is processed by the operators of the platforms and, if necessary, transferred to countries outside the European Union. What information the operators receive and how it is used is described in general terms in the respective data protection guidelines. On the individual platforms, you will also find information on how to contact the operators and how to set up advertisements; on Facebook: www.facebook.com/about/privacy
In what way the operators of the social networks use the data from the visit of the respective pages for their own purposes, to what extent activities on the pages are assigned to individual users, how long these data are stored and whether data from a visit to the respective page are passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by the operators and is not known to us.

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) can be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address with other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible that Google could identify at least individual users based on the data received. It would be possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the Google website could be processed for other purposes over which we have no influence and cannot. This and the fact that data is transferred to the USA is problematic for data protection reasons.
