Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for the website operator, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

4.2 Facebook

This website uses plugins provided by Facebook.com, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Users of our website, where the Facebook plugin is installed, are hereby informed that a connection to Facebook is established when the plugin is activated, resulting in your browser sending information to Facebook so that the plugin appears on the website.

6. Data Processing

Data processing is carried out in accordance with the legal regulations of § 174 TKG (consent) and/or (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.
