Google Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

The use of Google Maps is to facilitate the ‘Find an Installer’ feature on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of Google.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web service analysis tool from Google Inc. (“Google“). Google Analytics use “cookies,” which are text files saved on your computer to help us to analyse how users use this site.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use the information to evaluate your use of the website, to collect reports on the website activities and to perform other services related to the website use and internet use for the website operator.
