For each individual access of the “Google Maps” module, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when displaying the page where the “Google Maps” element is integrated.

Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) for consistent presentation of fonts. When you visit a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google will learn that our website has been accessed via your IP address. We use Google Web Fonts in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer. US-based Google LLC is certified under the US Privacy Shield, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection in the EU.
Our website uses Google reCAPTCHA to check and prevent automated servers (“bots”) from accessing and interacting with our website. This is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (hereinafter: Google).
Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant Google guarantees that it will follow the EU’s data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.
This service allows Google to determine from which website your request has been sent and from which IP address the reCAPTCHA input box has been used. In addition to your IP address, Google may collect other information necessary to provide and guarantee this service.
The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our website and in the prevention of unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar.
Google offers detailed information at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en concerning the general handling of your user data.
On our website, the so-called “Facebook-Pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”), is used for remarketing purposes, to create custom audiences and to measure Facebook conversions.
The purpose of these functions is to present visitors to this website with interest-related advertisements („Facebook ads“) when they use the social network Facebook. Through the remarketing function of the Facebook pixel embedded in this website, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is established when accessing our page. This tells the Facebook server that you have visited this page. Facebook processes this information, assigns it to your Facebook account as appropriate and uses it to generate interest-related advertising.
Furthermore, the aforementioned Facebook functions can be used to track the behaviour of website visitors after they have clicked on a Facebook ad to reach our website. This enables us to analyse the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and to optimise them for future use.
You can also disable the remarketing feature for custom audiences in the Ad Preferences section under https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You must first log in to Facebook. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can suppress Facebook usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
Our website contains embedded YouTube videos that are stored at “www.youtube.com” and can be played directly on our website. In this context, we use the “extended privacy mode” option provided by YouTube, which means that no data concerning you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. When you play the videos, YouTube cookies will be stored on your computer and data will be transmitted to YouTube’s operator Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). If you play videos stored on YouTube, at least the following data will be transmitted to Google: IP address and cookie ID, the specific address of our page that you are accessing, the browser’s language settings, the system date and time of access as well as identification of your browser. Data transmission will occur regardless of whether you are logged in to a YouTube user account or whether you do not have a user account. If you are logged in, this data will be directly associated with your account. You can prevent this association by logging out before pressing the Start button. Google stores this data as usage profiles, which it uses for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-oriented design of its websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these usage profiles by contacting Google directly as the operator of YouTube. Google provides more information regarding privacy on YouTube at policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. By playing YouTube videos, you agree to the processing of data by Google. The data in question will not be processed by AGS-Engineering GmbH.
