( https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/ ) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA) for the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing the site pages 94043, USA, hereafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see paragraph 3 above) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • Browser type / version,
  • used operating system,
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of server request,

are transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor-made website design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data in the order. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that an assignment is not possible (so-called IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; However, WeylChem points out that in this case not all features of this website may be fully exploited.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on ( https: //tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en ).

5. Integration of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API, a map service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/, hereafter "Google"), to display an interactive map. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to easier find our locations indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Google may transfer the information obtained through Google Maps to third parties, if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible that Google could make an identification of at least individual users on the basis of the received data. It would be possible that personal information and personality profiles of Google's users could be processed by Google for other purposes that we cannot influence This and the fact that data are transmitted to the US, is problematic for reasons of data protection laws.

You can easily deactivate the service of Google Maps and thus prevent the data transfer to Google: Disable JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to remind you that in such case you will not be able to use the map services provided.

By using this website and by not deactivating the JavaScript function, you explicitly declare that you consent with the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose stated above.

For complete information about Google's collection and use of data, please visit the Google Privacy Center at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and Google Maps Terms of Service at https://maps.google.com/help/terms_maps.html .
