You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your website usage (including your IP address), and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on
Alternatively to the browser add-on, for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection of your data through Google Analytics by clicking on this link. This will set an opt-out cookie that prevents any future collection of your data during future website visits:

§ 10 Integration of Google Maps
(1) This website uses Google Maps, a service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter "Google"). This allows us to place interactive maps on our website and allows you to use the convenient map features.
(2) By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to, or if there is no user account. When you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned to your account. If you do not wish our location to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out of your Google account before clicking on the directions tab on the “Contact” page.

§ 11 Use of Google Ads
(1) We use Google Ads to draw attention to our product ranges by placing advertisements, known as “ads”, on external websites. The data from our Google Ads campaigns help us determine the success of our ads. Our aim is to show you ads that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to reach a fair estimation of advertising costs.
(2) These ads are supplied by Google via what are known as “ad servers”. To do this, we use ad server cookies, which can measure certain performance metrics, such as ad impressions or user clicks. If you access our website through a Google Ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your device.

These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. Stored data associated with this cookie will typically be the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant to post-view conversions) and opt-out information (if a user withdrew their consent to be targeted).

 (3) These cookies allow Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages on a Google Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their device has not expired, Google and the Google Ads customer will be able to detect that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be traced beyond the website of the Google Ads customer. We do not collect and process any personal data from the aforementioned advertising. Google simply provides us with statistical evaluations, from which we can identify which of the advertising measures used are most effective. Google Ads does not provide us with any additional data and individuals cannot be identified from the data that Google Ads provides to us.
(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no control over the extent and the further use of the data which is collected through this tool by Google. We therefore inform you according to the best of our knowledge: through Google Ads conversion metrics, Google collects the information that you visited a certain part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with another Google service, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, Google may record and store your IP address.

(5) You can prevent being tracked in a number of ways:

a) by adjusting your browser settings, in particular by refusing third-party cookies, third-party advertisements will be prevented from being displayed to you;

b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, using https://adssettings.google.com, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies;

c) by deactivating the personalised ads of providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign via the link http://optout.aboutads.info, this setting will be deleted once you delete your cookies;

d) by permanent deactivation within Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers via the link https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996.
Please be aware that, as a result, you may not be able to benefit from all the features of personalised ads.
(6) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
