On our website, we use cookies in order to allow for the use of certain website features, to analyse the use of our website by users, and to provide certain third-party services.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognize your computer during your next visit (long-term cookies). In addition, our website also uses third-party cookies.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by configuring your browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all of the features of this website to their full extent.

If you do not wish our cookies to be stored on your computer, please deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser for our website or set your browser so that cookies are generally not stored on your computer. It is also possible to delete previously saved cookies in your browser.

The deactivation of the use of cookies may require the storage of a permanent cookie on your computer. If you subsequently delete this cookie, you will need to carry out the deactivation again.

The following categories of cookies are used on our website:

I. Session-Cookies

a. Session ID

In order to make it easier for you to browse our website, we set a so-called session ID (English: session identifier, German: Sitzungs-ID), which is assigned to each visitor at the beginning of each use of our website. This session ID is used by our server to recognize you or your computer/browser as the same visitor, even though your IP address may have changed in the meantime. This session ID enables the assignment of several related requests by a user to one session.

Retention period: The session ID cookie we use is only valid until the end of a session. It is automatically deleted when you close your browser.

II. Langzeit-Cookies

a. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses cookies which, among other things, enable an analysis of how the website is used by you. When using Google Analytics through this website, the following types of data are collected: IP address, usage behaviour, browser data. The information generated by these cookies is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the United States of America. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the activities on our website and to provide further services associated with the website and Internet use for us as the operator of this website. These reports and services are used to continuously improve the offer of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by these cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the Google browser plug-in available at the following link: Depending on the browser used, further plug-ins of this type are also made available by other providers.

In view of the debate surrounding the use of analysis tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()” and therefore processes abbreviated IP addresses only in order to rule out any links to individuals. Your IP address will therefore be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. The IP address that is transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not collated with other data from Google.

Retention period: Up to two years


III. Cookies from third-party service providers

Our website also includes services offered by third parties. With regard to these services, personal data may be used by the providers listed below, which are outside the responsibility of the provider of this website.


a. Google Maps

On certain subpages, this website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to provide directions. Google Maps is a map service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information on the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered in the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the United States.

If you visit a page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google servers. Google transmits the map content directly to your browser and integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, these are at least the following data:


  • Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
  • Internet address or URL of the accessed website,
  • IP address,
  • (start) address entered during route planning.


We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and can therefore not assume any responsibility for this. If you do not want Google to collect, process or use data about you via our website, you can deactivate JavaScript in your browser settings. In this case, however, you cannot use the map viewing function.

To find out more about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Google, as well as your rights and configuration options to protect your privacy, please refer to Google’s privacy policy:
