2. Use and Application of Vimeo

We use the provider Vimeo for the integration of videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

On our Internet page we use plugins from the provider Vimeo. When you access the Internet pages of our website that are equipped with such a plug-in, a connection is established to the Vimeo servers and the plug-in is displayed. This tells the Vimeo server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When you use the plugin, such as when you click on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.

Further information on data processing and notes on data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.

3. Use of Google Maps

We use the component “Google Maps” of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”, on our website.

Each time the “Google Maps” component is called up, Google sets a cookie in order to process user settings and data when displaying the page on which the “Google Maps” component is integrated. This cookie is usually not deleted when the browser is closed, but expires after a certain time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.

If you do not agree with this processing of your data, there is the possibility to deactivate the service of “Google Maps” and thus prevent the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java-Script function in your browser. We would like to point out, however, that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps”, or only to a limited extent.

The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained via “Google Maps” is in accordance with the Google terms of use


and the additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps
