This website uses so-called cookies which are used to make our internet presence an overall more user-friendly, effective and secure service – for example by accelerating navigation on our site. Cookies also enable us to measure the frequency with which pages are accessed and also the general navigation. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer system. We wish to inform you that some of these cookies are transferred from our server to your computer system, most of which are so-called "session cookies". "Session cookies" are characterized by the fact that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your computer system and permit us to recognize your computer during your next visit to our site (known as persistent cookies). Of course, you can prevent cookies from being used at any time via your browser settings. Please note that certain functions of this website can then possibly only be used with restrictions or not at all if your browser is set not to accept cookies (from our website).
4. Using Twitter plugins
Our internet presence includes so-called Twitter widgets and/or Twitter buttons (referred to in the following as "Twitter plugins") from the social network twitter.com (referred to in the following as "Twitter"). Twitter is a company of Twitter Inc. 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
Every time a page of our website is accessed which features this type of Twitter plugin, the plugin causes your browser to load and display the visual depiction of the Twitter plugin from the Twitter server. By integrating the Twitter plugin, Twitter receives log data and places a cookie on your computer which identifies your browser. The log data includes information including your IP address, browser type, operating system, previously accessed websites, visited websites, your location, your mobile phone provider, your mobile device, application IDs, search terms and cookie information.
Twitter uses this log data in order to provide services and to assess, adjust and improve them. In particular, the data can be used to tailor content on Twitter to your profile on the basis of visited websites with Twitter plugins. This takes place irrespective of whether you have a Twitter account or not. Under the internet address below, you can find data protection information from Twitter with more details on the collection and utilization of data by Twitter: http://twitter.com/privacy
5. Use of Facebook plugins
In our website, we have integrated so-called plugins of the social network facebook.com (referred to hereafter as "Facebook"). Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The following internet address provides a list of these Facebook plugins and their appearance: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
Every time a page of our website is accessed which features such a plugin, the plugin causes your browser to load and display the visual depiction of the plugin from the Facebook server. Integration of the plugin causes Facebook to receive the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook user account or are currently not logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transferred directly by your browser to a Facebook server in the USA, where it is stored.
If you are a member of Facebook and are logged into Facebook while visiting our website, Facebook recognizes the information sent by the plugin about which page of our website you are currently visiting, and assigns this to your personal user account on Facebook, irrespective of whether or not you activate one of the plugins. If you now activate one of the plugins, for example by "liking" an entry or by adding a comment, this is transmitted to your personal user account on Facebook, where it is stored. To prevent Facebook from assigning the collected data to your user account on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our website.
Under the internet address below, you will find data protection instructions from Facebook which provide more detailed information on the collection and utilization of data by Facebook, about your rights in relation to this and on the setting possibilities open to you to help you protect your private sphere:
6. Use of the Google "+1" button
On our website, we use the "+1" button of the social network Google+ (Google Plus) from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (called "Google" in the following).
Every time a page of our website is accessed which features a "+1" button, the "+1" button causes your browser to load and display the visual depiction of the "+1" button from the Google server. This communicates to the Google server which specific page of our website you are currently visiting. Google logs your browser progress when displaying a "+1" button for up to two weeks for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. No further-reaching evaluation of your visit to a page of our website with a "+1" button takes place.
If you actuate the "+1" button while you are logged into Google + (Google Plus), Google uses your Google profile to collect information about the URL you shared, your IP address and other browser-related information, to allow your "+1" share to be stored and made publicly accessible. Your "+1" shares can be superimposed in the form of information together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile (in the form of a "+1" tab in your Google profile) or in other locations on websites and advertisements in the Internet. If you log out of your Google+ profile, the assignment of data to your Google+ profile is prevented.
Under the internet address below, you will find data protection instructions from Google about the "+1" button which provide more detailed information on the collection and utilization of data by Google, about your rights in relation to this and on the profile setting possibilities open to you:
