Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

When you access the „Google Maps“ page, these „recommendation components“ cause the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from the respective provider. This informs the respective provider named above which specific page of our website you are currently visiting.
If you are logged in to your personal account at the time you access the „Google Maps“ page, the providers mentioned above may collect the information obtained via the website recommended by you, your IP address and other browser-related information and link it to your respective account.
