USE OF FACEBOOK PLUGINS
This website uses plugins from the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc. 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
When you visit our website with such a plugin, a connection to the Facebook servers is established and the plugin is displayed on the website by a message to your browser. This will tell the Facebook server which of our website you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the "Like" button, submitting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in.
We use so-called cookies on our website, which enable us to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer and that your browser remembers. The cookies remain on your computer so that our server recognizes your computer the next time you visit, if you so wish. You can set your browser so that it informs you before accepting a cookie or that it no longer accepts cookies. However, we would like to point out that if you reject function-related cookies, you can only use certain offers under difficult conditions. Certain functions are only available if you accept the use of function-related cookies.
Information about data processing in connection with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the person responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics will be processed by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google."
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the computer of the site visitor and allow an analysis of the use of the website by the site visitor. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the shortened IP address) are usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.
Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()" on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. The extension truncates Google's IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data provided by Google.
On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the resulting information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with additional services related to website activity and internet usage (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are adequately protected by the pseudonymization.
Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here.) and guarantees an appropriate level of data protection on this basis. The data sent and linked with cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. Data whose retention period has expired is automatically deleted once a month.
The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the page visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with future effect. The corresponding browser plug-in can be downloaded and installed under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
