For example, if you click the “Like” button or leave a comment, the relevant information will be sent directly from your browser to Facebook and saved there. Furthermore, Facebook makes your preferences public for your Facebook friends. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our site directly to your Facebook account. Even if you are not logged in or do not have a Facebook account at all, your browser transmits information (e.g. which website you have accessed, your IP address) that is stored by Facebook. For details on how Facebook handles your personal data and your rights in this regard, please refer to Facebook’s data protection information. If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected about you via our websites to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our websites.

(2) Google MapsThis website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to create directions. Google Maps is a map service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, can be transmitted to Google in the USA. If you call up a page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Google servers. The map content is sent directly from Google to your browser, which integrates it into the website. Hence we have no influence on the amount of data collected by Google in this way.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.
