Hosting C & P makes use of the hosting services of Host Europe GmbH, Hansestrasse 111, 51149 Cologne, Germany. These include the provision of infrastructure and platform services, computer capacity, storage space and database services, security services as well as technical maintenance support, that C & P adopts for the purpose of operating this website. In this context, basic data, contact data, content data, contractual data, usage data, meta and communication data of clients, interested parties and visitors of this website are processed on the basis of the legitimate interest in an efficient and safe provision of this website in the sense of article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f of GDPR. Use of libraries of script (Google Webfonts) In order to present the contents of this website in a correct and graphically appealing way independently from the browser, C & P resorts to libraries of script and fonts, as e.g. Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transferred into the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not assist Google Webfonts or prevents access, website contents are shown in a default font. Opening libraries of script or fonts automatically produces a connection to the operator of the library. In the process, it is theoretically possible – currently, however, unclear whether and for which purposes, if so, – that operators of such libraries acquire data. For the data protection regulation of the library operator Google see: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ Use of Google Maps This website resorts to Google Maps API to give geographic information in a visual way. In this context, Google gathers, processes and avails itself of data on the use of the map functions by visitors. For detailed information on data handling by Google see the Google Data Protection Information. In the Data Protection Center you may change your personal data protection settings, if need be.
