Deletion of data and storage periods

Unless otherwise stated, we will delete or anonymize your data as soon as it is no longer needed (e.g. your e-mail address after you have unsubscribed from a newsletter). Your data will also be deleted or anonymized automatically if the mandatory storage period expires (e.g. those required by law for payment transactions). Such data may be needed for longer periods of time for legal reasons. You can request information about all personal data we have stored about you.

Visiting our website

If you merely wish to browse our website, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your browser sends to us, e.g.:

  • IP address (e.g. 96.92.316.example or 2a02:7122:8337:1112:bdb2:651f:example)
  • Approximate location based on IP range (e.g. “Frankfurt city”)
  • Internet provider (e.g. “Telecom” or „AT&T“)
  • Internet connection speed (e.g. 100 Mbit)
  • Date and time of visit (e.g. 11:45 on 25.05.2018)
  • Last visited website (e.g. google.com)
  • Browser and version (e.g. Chrome v65 or Safari 11.1)
  • Operating system (e.g. Mac OS)
  • Hardware (e.g. Intel processor)

As a safeguard to protect your privacy, we delete or anonymise your IP address after your visit. Therefore, all other data possibly attached to it can no longer be traced back to you. It will only serve anonymous and statistical purposes to optimise our website. The purpose of temporarily storing this data is necessary to establish a connection as well as loading our website the way it was designed to. Such data is therefore required to display the website on your screen, to avoid display problems and other technical error messages. The legal basis for EU visitors is the legitimate interest in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In addition, we apply the aforementioned safeguards to protect your data.

Contact form

You have the possibility to contact us via our contact form. You can provide us with the following data:

  • Your Name
  • Name of Company
  • E-mail address
  • Phone
  • Attachments (passport copies, residence registrations, tax assessments etc.)

We process this data only to respond to your contact request and to fulfill your request to contact us. By sending your request, you agree to the processing of the data associated with it.


You can rest assured that no data is being transferred or shared outside of the EU and/or EEA. As the website will be under constant development, data processing activities performed by third party providers based outside of the mentioned geographical scope may take place in part or in full in the country of the respective establishment and/or according to the applicable data protection provisions. If such transfer through third parties occur, it shall take place on the basis of an adequacy decision of the European Commission, including particularly the adequacy decision regarding EU-US Privacy Shield as well as any possible transfer to Japan, or according to standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.


We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are usually stored in a folder from your browser. Cookies contain information about the current or last visit to our website:

If cookies do not contain an exact expiration date, they are stored only temporarily and are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser or restart your device. Cookies with an expiration date will still be stored even when you close your browser or restart your device. Such cookies will not be deleted until the specified date or if you delete them manually.

We use the following three types of cookies on our website:

  • required cookies (cookies that are required, e.g. to display the website correctly for you and to store certain settings temporarily)
  • functional and performance-related cookies (cookies that help us improve our website, e.g. to evaluate technical data of your visit and avoid error messages)
  • advertising and analytics cookies (cookies that provide analytics and personalized ads, e.g. advertising for shoes is displayed if you have previously searched for shoes)

You can configure, block and delete cookies in your browser settings. If you delete all cookies from our website, some functions of the website may not be displayed correctly.


Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses the advertising and analysis cookies described above to analyze our website with regard to your usage behavior. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, your IP address is shortened before the usage statistics are analyzed, so that no conclusions can be drawn about your person. For this purpose, Google Analytics on our website has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses. Google will use the anonymized information obtained through the cookies to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related 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.

You can also configure your browser to reject cookies, or you can prevent the collection and analysis of data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plugin (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) from Google.

As a protective measure, we use the anonymization procedure offered by Google, whereby a subsequent evaluation of the data is not based on your person, but only on a statistical basis. In addition, the high security standards of the Google platform and the associated privacy policy of Google (http://www.google.com/intl/de-DE/privacy) apply. We have also concluded a special data protection contract (order processing) with Google, which stipulates the protection of your data through technical and organizational protective measures. Since Google is based in the USA and thus a so-called third country, further guarantees are required to ensure an adequate European level of data protection. Google provides standard contractual clauses by means of which an adequate level of data protection for international data is contractually assured. The standard contractual clauses have been evaluated and jointly agreed.

The purpose of using Google Analytics is the anonymized analysis of your usage behavior on our websites. The insights gained from this help to improve our offer. The legal basis is the express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR.

Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to create directions. Google Maps is a map service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the USA. When you call up a web page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. Therefore, we have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, this is at least the following data:

  • Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
  • Internet address or URL of the website called up,
  • IP address, (start) address entered as part of route planning.

We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and therefore cannot accept any responsibility for this.

If you do not want Google to collect, process or use data about you via our website, you can disable JavaScript in your browser settings. In this case, however, you will not be able to use the map display.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Google’s privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de).

By using our website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google Maps Route Planner in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

The website may contain links to other sites. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. Note that these external sites are not operated by us. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you review the Privacy Policy of these websites. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.

Children’s Privacy

The website does not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided the website with personal information, such information will immediately get deleted from the servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided some personal information along browsing this website, please contact us so that we will be able to do necessary actions.
