Data Protection Policy:
When Google AdSense, an advertising service provided by Google Inc., USA (‘Google’) places advertising on this website (text ads, banners, etc.), your browser may save a cookie sent by Google Inc. or by a third party. The information saved in the cookie may be recorded, collected and analysed by Google Inc. or by third parties. In addition, Google AdSense uses so-called ‘web beacons’ (small, invisible graphics) to collect information, which allow simple actions such as visitor traffic on the website to be recorded, collected and analysed. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie and/or web beacon is sent to a Google server in the USA and is saved there. Google uses the information received in this way to carry out an analysis of your usage behaviour in relation to the AdSense advertising. Google may also pass this information on to third parties insofar this is legally prescribed or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google does not link your IP address to any other data saved by Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved on your hard disk and web beacons from being displayed. To do so, you must select ‘Do not accept cookies’ in your browser settings (in Internet Explorer under ‘Extras/Internet Options/Data Protection/Settings’, in Firefox under ‘Extras/Settings/Data Protection/Cookies’).

Use of social plugins
Social plugins from various social networks on the Internet (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram) are integrated into our website. These enable you to set bookmarks on the site and to share these bookmarks with other participants in the social network. You can recognise social plugins by the logos that can be seen on the websites of social networks. These enable you to set bookmarks on the site and to share these bookmarks with other participants in the social network. We offer you a ‘two clicks’ solution to use this facility: when the site loads, buttons are displayed to you but they are deactivated: there is no communication with Facebook, Google+ or Twitter. Only when you decide that you want to share the content do you activate the button by clicking on it with the mouse, then click a second time to initiate the process.
If you then access a page on our website that contains these social plugins and have the relevant button activated, a direct Internet connection is established with the social network and from there the plugin icon that is visible to you and the functions behind it are transferred directly to your browser, which integrates them into the display of our web page.

If at this time you are logged in to the social network with your username and password, the information that you are visiting our site is sent to it and can be added to your user account. If you interact with the social plugins, i.e. if you share one of our pages, for example, ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ it on Facebook, or use the ‘Tweet This’ function on Twitter, the content of our pages is linked to your profile on the social network.

On our website, we use the web service of the provider, which integrates a selected Instagram image stream into our website. If you click on images from the image stream provided while you are logged in to your Instagram account, content from our page can be linked to your Instagram profile. In this way, Instagram can link your visit to our site to your user account. If you are not a member of the social networks, there is nevertheless the possibility that at least your IP address will be transmitted and saved there.

We wish to point out that different data protection policies and liability provisions apply to these linked websites of third-party operators. The saving and use of data by the site operator when these linked sites are used may exceed the extent of this data protection policy. Further processing on linked social networks, the period for which the information is saved and the purpose for which it is used is determined exclusively by those providers.
