In some sub-pages, the map services "Google Maps" by Google Ireland Limited are embedded for the purpose of displaying interactive maps and creating directions. When you use the maps, e.g. by clicking on our locations listed there, we do not collect any data from you. However, since this service is embedded in our site, when you access the respective websites the content is automatically loaded and your usage data described above is transmitted to the provider for the purpose of carrying out the service. We have no influence on the further processing by Google Ireland Limited.
The legal basis for the data processing connected with the use of the map services is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the GDPR. The legitimate interest required for this lies in the optimization of our websites through localization and visualization of our companies and vacancies.

Embedded videos
We have embedded in some sub-pages of our websites YouTube videos from the provider Google Ireland Limited. When accessing these pages, the content is automatically loaded and your usage data is transmitted to the provider to carry out the service. To protect your privacy, however, all of these videos are embedded in the so-called "extended data privacy mode", so that no cookies are stored.
The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the GDPR. The embedding of YouTube videos serves the company presentation and is done in the interest of optimizing our websites.
