The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1, lit. f GDPR. We process your data in order to answer your question and enable us to communicate with you.

On our websites, we embed map services that are not stored on our servers. To ensure that calling up our websites with embedded map services does not automatically lead to the content of the third-party provider being reloaded, we only display locally stored preview images of the maps in a first step. This does not provide the third-party provider with any information.
Only after a click on the preview image or via a corresponding setting of our cookie banner will the content of the third-party provider be reloaded. This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider. By clicking on the preview image or via the corresponding setting in our banner, you give us permission to reload content from the third-party provider.
The embedding takes place on the basis of your consent.
Please note that the embedding of some map services means that your data is processed outside the EU or EEA. In some countries, there is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and monitoring purposes without you being informed or having any legal recourse. If we use providers in insecure third countries and you consent, the transfer to an insecure third country will be based on Article 49(1)(a) of the GDPR.
