Section 7 Use of Google Analytics
(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that make it possible to analyse how you use the website. The information the cookie generates on how you use this website is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will however truncate your IP address first if within the Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use the information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other services to the website operator that are connected with this website and Internet usage.
(2) The IP address your browser transmits for Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
(3) You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that you might not be able to use the full range of the features offered on this website. In addition, you can prevent the data generated by the Cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being transmitted to Google, and you can prevent Google from processing the data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: .
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". Consequently, IP addresses will be only be processed further in truncated form, thus ruling out the possibility that the data subject becomes identifiable. Thus, if the data generated concerning you would make you identifiable, such possibility of identification is immediately excluded and the personal data are immediately deleted.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve utilisation of our website. The statistics thus generated help us improve our service proposition and make it more interesting for you as a user. In the exceptional cases in which personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield framework: . The legal basis for using Google Analytics is Article 6 (1), first sentence, point (f) GDPR.

Section 8 Use of social media plug-ins
(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram. We use the so-called two click solution, meaning that when you visit our website, generally no personal data will initially be passed on to the plug-in provider. You can identify the plug-in provider by the marking on the box above its initial letter or by the logo. We enable you to communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Only when you click on the marked field, thus activating it, will the plug-in provider be informed that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. In addition, the data specified under section 3 hereof will be transmitted. In Facebook’s case, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymised immediately when collected. So, by activating the plug-in, some of your personal data will be transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and saved there (in the USA, in the case of US-American providers). As the plug-in provider primarily collects data through cookies, we recommend deleting all cookies via your browser’s safety settings before clicking on the grey box.
(2) We have no influence on data collection or data processing operations nor do we have knowledge of the full scope of the data collected, of the purposes of processing, or of the retention periods. Likewise, we have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider saves the data it collected concerning you in the form of a user profile and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or to design its website as needed. Such analysis is carried out (also on users that have not logged on) especially to display needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles, however in order to exercise the right you have to address it to the respective plug-in provider. Through such plug-ins we enable you to interact with social networks and other users, which helps us improve our service proposition and make it more interesting to you as a user. The legal basis for using plug-ins is Article 6 (1), first sentence, point (f) GDPR.
(4) The data will be transmitted regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged into it. If you are logged-into the plug-in provider, the data collected by us will be allocated directly to the your account with the plug-in provider. When you use the activated button and for instance link the page, the plug-in provider will save this information in your user account, too, and will publicly inform your contacts about it. We recommend that you always log out of a social network after having used it, and especially before activating the button as you can thus prevent the information from being allocated to your profile with the plug-in provider.
(5) For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing carried out by plug-in providers, please read the plug-in providers’ privacy policies listed below. They also contain additional information about your rights and privacy settings.
