Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.

INTEGRATION OF SERVICES AND CONTENT FROM THIRD PARTIES
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated into this online offer. This always involves that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) note the IP address of the users because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers use IP addresses merely to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party provider e.g. saves the IP address for statistical purposes. If we do know about the usage, we will inform the users about it.

This offer uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on the user’s computer and enable an analysis of their use of the website.

USE OF FACEBOOK SOCIAL PLUGINS
This offer uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the terms “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When a user calls up a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects through this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his level of knowledge: By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from their browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If a user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about them via this offer and link it to their member data stored on Facebook, they must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and dissent regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
This offer uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be recognized by terms such as “Twitter” or “Follow” in conjunction with a stylized blue bird. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a contribution or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.
When a user calls up a page on this website that contains such a button, their browser establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter button is transmitted from Twitter directly to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and informs the user according to his level of knowledge. According to this, only the user’s IP address and the URL of the respective website are transmitted when the button is utilized, but not used for purposes other than the display of the button.
Further information can be found in Twitter’s data protection declaration at https://twitter.com/de/privacy.
