Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumbs-up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social plugins please see http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser sets up a direct connection to Facebook's servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds it into the website. Thus we have no influence on the data collected by Facebook using the plugin, and can only inform you according to our state of knowledge:
The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like” or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. Even if you are not a member of Facebook, the plugins may still transmit your IP address to Facebook where it is stored.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses 'cookies', text files that are saved on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information about your visit collected by the cookie (including your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there.
If this website has activated IP anonymization, your IP address will first be abbreviated within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. IP anonymization is activated on this website. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about your activities within this site, and to provide further services for the website operator related to use of the website and Internet use.
Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by entering the corresponding settings in your browser software.
