These web pages are using plugins from the social networks Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter.

 

The different logos that contain the plugins can be viewed at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-button/?locale=de_DE or https://developers.google.com/+/plugins or https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons

 

When plugins are plugged in as standard, a connection between your computer and the servers of the social media operators will be created by visiting the internet pages of our Internet presence (which contain such plugins). In this case, your IP address and the information which of our Internet pages you have visited are transmitted to the servers of Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus in the USA. This is independent of whether you are registered or logged in to Facebook, Google Plus, or Twitter. A transmission is also made in case of non-registered or non-logged-in users.

 

In order to keep control of your data, we have decided to deactivate the buttons of the corresponding buttons first. You can recognize this by the grayed-out buttons. Without your explicit agreement - in the form of the activation of the buttons - no connection is created to the servers of the social networks and consequently no data are transmitted.

 

Only by activating the buttons, the buttons become active (in colour) and a direct connection to the social networks is established.

 

By activating the buttons, you will agree to the transfer of your data to Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

 

If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the collected information is also assigned to your respective profiles.

 

To prevent this assignment, you have to log out of your social media accounts before you visit our website and before you are activating the buttons.

 

Using Facebook plugins

Plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), are used on these webpages.

If you invoke webpages of our Internet presence, which are provided with such a plugin, a link is established with the Facebook servers and the plugin is displayed on the webpage through a notification to your browser. Which of our webpages you have visited is transmitted to the Facebook server. If you are logged in on Facebook, Facebook allocates this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button, entering a comment), even this information is allocated to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin. If you do not want Facebook to assign all

acquired information to your Facebook profile immediately, you must either log out of your account before visiting our site or must use add-on provided by Facebook for your browser

This is independent of whether you have registered with or are logged in on Google Plus. Data is

transferred even in case of users who are not registered or logged in on these sites. The “+1” button is not used to record your visits on the Internet. When displaying a “+1” button, Google does not permanently log your browser history and also does not analyse your visit to a page with “+1” button in another manner. Google saves the data of your visit for about two weeks for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured as per the individual profiles, user names or URLs, and is also not forwarded to us.

Moreover, if you are a member of Google Plus, and if your are logged in on Google Plus during the period in which you use the plugin, the information collected about your website visit is linked to your Google Plus Account and disclosed to other users. Even in case of interactions, which are possible with various Google plugins, the corresponding information about you is collected and transmitted to Google and stored there. For an overview of the different types of Google plugins, log on to:

https://developers.google.com/+/plugins

If you have made your profile publically accessible in the Google Plus settings, your “+1” can be superimposed by Google as information together with your profile names and your photo in Google services, e.g. in search results or in your Google profile, or at other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. If you do not want Google to allocate the collected information directly to your Google Plus profile, you must first log out of Google Plus before visiting our site. Other information about the collection and usage of the data by Google, about your relevant rights and options for protecting your privacy can be found in the Data Protection information of Google:
