This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

In case of activation of IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider 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 to the website provider.

Use of Cookies

Some of our pages may use cookies or other technologies installed by us. These technologies enable us to support you more effectively, should you return to our website.

 “Social Plugins”

As part of digital services, in some circumstances so-called social plugins are used by various social networks, such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. These functions enable you to share individual items of content with your friends in the relevant social networks and/or to recommend this content.

Use of these social plugins, for example through the Facebook “Like” button, the Google+ button or Twitter, at the same time enables the social network in question to gather data relating to the individual as outlined below.

When you click to view a particular digital offering into which a social plugin is integrated, the social network immediately creates a direct connection to your browser. This means the social network gets notification that you visited this website and the information includes your IP address/device ID, amongst other things. This happens regardless of whether you are currently logged into the social network or whether you are registered at all.

When you are logged into the relevant social network at the same time, it automatically allocates your viewing of the website to your profile. When you activate the relevant social plugins too and recommend articles and content, for example, the social network can allocate this information to your profile. If you don’t want the social network to allocate your visit to our website to your specific user account, then you should log out of the relevant network while making use of our digital offering.

We would like to inform you that the data gathered in connection with the social plugins is exchanged exclusively between your browser and the operator of the social network. We have no knowledge of the content of the data gathered and transferred. Against this background, we recommend that you read the relevant current data protection notices for each of the abovementioned operators of social networks.

Our digital services includes, among other things, the so-called “Like” button from Facebook. Facebook’s data protection guidelines can be found at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php

The Google+ Button is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The relevant data protection declaration for this can be found at http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html

Last but not least, you can also use the Twitter service from Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, whose data protection declaration can be found at http://twitter.com/privacy.
