Google Web Fonts

We use web fonts provided by Google for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, your browser must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of representing our online services in a consistent and appealing way. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

For more information about Google Web Fonts, see the Google Privacy Policy:
You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded by Google’s servers (e.g., by installing add-ons). If your browser does not support Google Fonts or you block access to Google servers, the text will be displayed in the system default font. Please note that our page will then no longer display using our screen design.

Google Maps

We use the Google Maps map service via an API for the purpose of representing our online services in an appealing way and making it easy to locate the places we indicate on the website. The use of Google Maps requires your IP address to be stored. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to Google’s Privacy Policy:

If you disagree with the future transmission of your data to Google while using Google Maps, you may disable the Google Maps Web service entirely by turning off the JavaScript application in your browser, in which case Google Maps and the map display on this website can no longer be used. Please note that if JavaScript is disabled, other functions that we would like to offer you on our website will no longer function either.

On our websites we use a version of Matomo implemented on our own servers. This is an open source analysis software for the purpose of statistical evaluation of visitor access. By means of this evaluation we would like to understand in particular which and how often our pages are accessed. However, we do not want to understand by whom these pages are called: the implementation of Matomo on our server does not use any cookies. We only store anonymized user data for the purpose of collecting general statistical values, without analyzing the user behavior comprehensively. A comprehensive analysis of the user behavior is also not possible due to the anonymously collected data. The IP address transmitted in the server log-in is made anonymous on our server before it is transmitted to the Matomo installation and replaced by a random IP address. It is also not possible to trace the IP address on the basis of the anonymized data, since time entries are randomized by the Matomo.
