8. Plugins and tools

Google Maps

The website uses Google Maps API in order to present geographical information visually. This is provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. During use of Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about visitors’ use of the map functions. Please refer to Google’s Privacy Policy for more information about Google and data processing. You can also change your data protection settings in the Data Protection Centre there. This contains detailed information about managing your data in connection with Google products.

Google Webfonts

On this website we use script libraries and font libraries, such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) to display our content correctly across browsers and in a graphically appealing manner. These are provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Webfonts are transferred to avoid multiple uploads into your browser’s cache. Content is displayed in a standard font if the browser doesn’t support Google Webfonts or prohibits access.

Downloading script libraries or font libraries automatically creates a connection to the library’s operator. It is theoretically possible that the operators of corresponding libraries collect data, although it is currently unclear whether they do and for what purposes.
