A. Handling of personal data
The following provides information about how personal data is handled when using this website. Where not described otherwise in the following sections, the legal basis for handling your personal data arises from the necessity of handling it for the purpose of providing the functionalities requested by you on this website (Section 6 [b] of the General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR]).
I. Use of the website
1. Calling up the website
When you call up our website, your browser automatically transfers certain data to our web server in order to provide you with the information you have called up. In order to make your visit to our website possible, the following data is collected, briefly stored and used:
• IP address
• Date and time of the request
• Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
• Content of the request (specific page)
• Operating system and its access status / HTTP status code
• Data volume transferred

To safeguard our legitimate interests, we also store this data for a limited time to allow derivation of personal data in the case of unauthorised access or attempted access to local servers (Section 6 [f] GDPR).
a) What cookies are
b) What cookies do we use?
We differentiate between two categories of cookies: (1) functional cookies, without which the functionality of our website would be reduced, and (2) optional cookies used for website analysis and marketing purposes.
c) Subject to your consent
We only use optional cookies if we have obtained your prior consent (Art. 6(1)(a) General Data Protection Regulation). Upon your first access to our website, a banner will appear, asking you to give us your consent to the setting of optional cookies. If your consent is given, we will place a cookie on your computer and the banner will not appear again as long as the cookie is active. After expiration of the cookie’s lifespan, or if you actively delete the cookie, the banner will reappear upon your next visit to our website and again ask for your consent.
3. Website analysis
On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
Google will analyse your use of our website on our behalf. To this purpose we use, among others, the cookies described above in more detail. The information collected by Google in connection with your use of our website (e.g. the referring URL, our webpages visited by you, your browser type, your language settings, your operating system, your screen resolution) will be transmitted to a server of Google in the US, where it will be stored and analysed. The respective results will then be made available to us in anonymised form. Your usage data will not be connected to your full IP address during this process. We have activated on our website the IP anonymising function offered by Google, which will delete the last 8 digits (type IPv4) or the last 80 bits (type IPv6) of your IP address. Moreover, Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, which ensures that an adequate level of data protection is maintained with respect to the processing of data by Google in the US.
You may revoke your consent to the use of web analysis at any time, either by downloading and installing the provided Google Browser Plugin or by clicking the link below, in which case an opt-out cookie will be placed. Both options will prevent the application of web analysis only as long as you use the browser on which you installed the plugin and do not delete the opt-out cookie.
4. Use of contact forms
You can contact us directly using the contact forms provided on the website. They allow you to share the following information in particular:
• Email address
• Telephone number
• Your message / request
We collect, process and use the information you have shared with us using the contact forms exclusively for processing your specific concern.
5. External services and content on our website
We integrate external services or content on our website. If you use such a service or if third party content is displayed to you, communication data between you and the respective provider is automatically exchanged.
It may also be the case that the provider of the respective services or content processes your data for its own, alternative purposes. We have configured services or content from providers that are known to use data for their own purposes to the best of our knowledge and belief in such a way that there is no communication for purposes other than for display of the content or services on our website or that communication only takes place if you actively decide to use the service. Since we have no influence on the data collected by third parties and how they process it, we are unable to give definitive information about the purpose and scope of the processing of your data.
Further information about the purpose and scope of the collection and processing of your data can therefore be found in the data protection notice of the respective data protection-compliant provider of the services or content integrated by us. These include:
• Youtube (videos)
• Google Maps
• HVV Portal (local public transport)
6. Transfer of data for processing on our behalf
We use specialised service providers to process some of your data. We carefully select and regularly monitor our service providers. They process personal data via order processing exclusively on our behalf and strictly in accordance with our instructions on the basis of corresponding agreements.
Data is not processed outside the EU / the European Economic Area.
7. Information about your rights
You have the following rights based on the applicable data protection laws:
• Right to information about the data we have stored about you;
• Right to rectification, deletion or limitation of the processing of your personal data;
• Right to object to processing that serves our legitimate interests, a public interest or profiling, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the enforcement, exercise or defence of legal claims ;

• You can revoke the consent you gave for the collection, processing and use of your personal data at any time with future effect. More detailed information relating to this can be found in the respective sections above, which describe data processing based on your consent.
