Cookies

Rhein-Main Solutions GmbH webpages use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored locally on a computer system through an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain what is known as a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique cookie identifier. It consists of a string of characters that allows Internet pages and servers to be assigned to the specific Internet browser where the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual’s specific browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Rhein-Main Solutions GmbH can provide users of this website more user-friendly services, services that would be impossible without them.

The information and offerings on our website can be optimized for the user through a cookie. As previously mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize our website’s users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data each time they visit the website because this is taken on by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The individual can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by means of the appropriate setting within the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to cooking being set. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time through the Internet browser or by using other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If an individual deactivates cookies in their Internet browser, the full functionality of this website may be unavailable.

Privacy policy for the Use of Google Maps

The data controller has integrated Google Maps on this website.

Google Maps (API) is a web service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) to display interactive maps for visual representation of geographical information. By using this service, visitors to the website are shown the company’s location and any journey is made easier.

Upon accessing subpages of the website into which Google Maps is integrated, information about the use of the respective website (such as the IP address for instance) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which the individual is logged in or whether no user account exists. If the individual is logged into Google, their data will be assigned directly to their account. If this assignment is not wanted, the individual must log out before clicking the button. Google saves the data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation takes place in particular according to GDPR Article 6 Paragraph 1f on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests for showing personalised advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Google LLC, headquartered in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield,” which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

If the individual does not agree to the future transmission of their data to Google as part of the use of Google Maps, it is also possible to completely deactivate the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in the browser. Google Maps and thus the map display on this website then cannot be used.

The Google Terms of Use can be viewed at https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en&gl=en, the additional Terms of Use for Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en_UTheylp/terms_maps.html.

Privacy Policy for the Use of Google Fonts

The controller has integrated Google fonts into this website. Google provides free fonts that can be used when designing websites.

This site uses web fonts provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) to uniformly display fonts. When a page is viewed, an individual’s browser loads the required web fonts into the browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser used by the individual must connect to Google’s servers. This gives Google knowledge that the relevant website has been accessed via the individual’s IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of the online offerings. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of GDPR Article 6 Paragraph 1f. If the individual’s browser does not support web fonts, the individual’s computer uses a default font.

Google LLC, headquartered in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield,” which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
