Google Maps API is a map service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We use Google Maps API to display an interactive map and to create directions or to help with the search for a stationary market.

Social media plug-ins
Our website offers you social media plug-ins from various social media sites so that you can connect to your social media channels. These plug-ins are marked with a logo or the words “social plug-in”. The integration of the plug-ins take place through AddThis.com, a service of Oracle America Inc., 500 Oracle Parkway, Redwood Shores, CA 94065, USA.
To protect your privacy, we integrate social plug-ins with technical solution that prevents data (such as an IP address) being sent to AddThis.com or social networks when you open our website. Only with first clicking on the social media plug-ins, they are activated. As a result, your browser will retrieve the plug-ins from the AddThis.com servers and present them as part of our website. In doing so, information (e.g., IP address) is transmitted to AaddThis.com and to social networks. In addition, AddThis.com can store cookies or so-called "web beacons" on your computer.
Only with a second click of the social media plug-ins you can fully use the disseminate function (like "Like button"). If you are a member of a social network and click on the corresponding social plug-in, the social network provider may be able to link information about your visit to our website with your profile data there. Please inform yourself about these functionalities by the providers of the social networks you use.
The following social media plug-ins are integrated into our website:
