This website uses the map service OpenStreetMap. OpenStreetMap is provided by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom.

OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world which has been largely prepared from scratch by volunteers and is published under an Open Content Licence.

The OpenStreetMap licence permits access to map images and to all underlying map data free of charge (or virtually free of charge). The aim of the project is to encourage new and interesting applications of this data.

In order to use the functions of OpenStreetMap, it is necessary for your IP address to be collected. This information is usually transmitted to an OpenStreetMap server, where it is stored. The provider of the present website has no influence on this data transmission.
OpenStreetMap is used in order to make it easier to find the locations stated on our website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause f) GDPR.

For more information on treatment of user data, please see the OpenStreetMap data protection statement at:
