To facilitate the use of this website we use so-called cookies. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are temporarily stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive and are necessary for the use of our website.

7. Plug-ins 7.1 Facebook plug-ins
On our website, plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are or might be integrated in the future. You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” or “Share” button on our site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When you visit our pages, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you click the Facebook “Like-Button” while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to assign visits to our Pages to your user account. The information of your interaction is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook.
Facebook may use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of the Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign visits to our pages to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account before using our website.
On our website you might find integrated plugins of the short message network Twitter Inc. 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. You can recognize the Twitter plugins (Tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. You can find an overview of the Tweet button at https://dev.twitter.com/.
If you do not want Twitter to be able to assign visits to our pages to your user account, please log out of your Twitter user account.
On our Internet pages we use so-called social plugins from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram Camera”. An overview of the Instagram plugins and their appearance can be found here: http://blog.instagram.com/post/36222022872/introducing-instagram-badges
When you access a page on our site that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. When you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the “Instagram” button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also published to your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.
If you do not want Instagram to associate the information collected through our web site directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our web site. You can also completely prevent Instagram plugins from loading by using add-ons for your browser, e.g. the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).
7.5 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie (browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL previously visited website, IP address, time of server request) about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
Further information about the web analysis service used can be found on the website of Google Analytics. Instructions on how to prevent the processing of your data by the web analysis service can be found at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
