The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) will be passed on to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activities for their operators, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet. 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.

We use so-called social plugins of the social network facebook.com. This is operated by the company Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA and identified by a Facebook logo or by the "Facebook Social Plugin" addition. When visiting our website provided with a social plugin, a connection to the servers of Facebook is automatically established. These servers in turn transmit the content for the social plugin to your browser and integrate it into the website. Exchange of information about your visit of our website takes place. Through the plugin integration, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook at the same time, Facebook may allocate this information to your personal Facebook user account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, if you activate the "Like" button or enter a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and saved there. If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and to link them with your data stored on Facebook, you need to log off from Facebook before accessing our website. If you are not a Facebook member or if you have logged off from Facebook before visiting our website, there is still the possibility for Facebook to find out and store your IP address. For information on the purpose and extent of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for the protection of your personal privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
On our website we also use so-called social plugins (“plugins“) of the microblogging service Twitter, operated by the company Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter“). These plugins are identified by a Twitter logo, for instance a blue “Twitter bird”. For an overview of the Twitter plugins and their appearance please refer to: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons. When you call up a page on our website that includes a plugin of this type, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Twitter servers. Twitter transmits the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates it into the website. Through the plugin integration, Twitter receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Twitter profile or if you are not logged in as a member of Twitter currently. Your browser passes on this information (including your IP address) to a Twitter server in the USA where it is saved. If you are logged in as a member of Twitter, Twitter may allocate the visit of our website to your personal Twitter account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, if you activate the "Twitter" button, the corresponding information will also be transmitted directly to a server of Twitter and saved there. The information is also published on your Twitter account and displayed to your contacts on Twitter. For information on the purpose and extent of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Twitter, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for the protection of your personal privacy, please refer to the Twitter data protection information: https://twitter.com/privacy.
