Integration of third-party services and content

Our pages contain links to other pages. We point out that we have no influence on the design and content of these pages to which links are provided. No responsibility can be taken for the topicality, correctness or completeness of the information contents there. We explicitly distance ourselves from all contents of any linked pages. This applies to all links to external sites and their respective contents contained on our Internet pages.

Google Maps

We also integrate map material from Google Maps into our Internet presence. Such integration requires the forwarding of the IP address for the use of the map material, as otherwise the corresponding contents cannot be transmitted to you by the third party provider without an IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content.


In addition, we integrate the captcha service reCAPTCHA from Google LLC. This is a fully automated and public Turing test designed to ensure that our forms were filled in by a person, not a bot. Further information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google's privacy policy can be found at the following links: and


On our pages we also embed YouTube videos from our own YouTube channel. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC. These videos were created by us with the activated "Advanced Privacy Mode" function. This means that data will not be transmitted to YouTube until you watch the video.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google to uniformly display 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, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.
