1. Use of Google Analytics


This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files saved to your computer to analyze your website use. The information generated by the cookie on your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services associated with the website and Internet usage. Google will transmit this information to third parties if required - either in accordance to law or if third parties are to process this data on Google's behalf. Google will in no case associate your IP address with any other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that you then may not be able to use all website features. By using this website, you agree to the processing of data collected about you by Google in the manner described and for the aforementioned purpose.

In principle, all IP-addresses are anonymized to comply with the Data Protection Law in Germany and the EU.

Furthermore, you can prevent the evaluation of your data by Google Analytics by using the deactivation add-on for browsers. This can also be configured with Firefox browsers by using the NoScript add-on.


2. Use of Facebook-Plugins


This site uses so-called social plug-ins by the Facebook social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). If you visit our website pages that have such a plug-in, a connection will be established to Facebook servers where the plug-in will be displayed on the website page by communicating with your browser. As a result, the website pages that you visited will be transmitted to the Facebook servers. Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook account if you are logged in as a Facebook member. This information will also be associated with your Facebook account when using plug-in functions (such as clicking the "Like" button or posting a comment), which can only be prevented by logging out before using the plug-in.

Further information concerning the collection and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and means to protect your privacy, can be found on the Facebook data protection / privacy pages.
