 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: 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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purpose.
