Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile.

Collection and disclosure of information: You can use the Google+ button to publish information worldwide.

Your +1 can be displayed as information together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve the Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or who have other identifying information about you.
Use of the information collected: In addition to the uses described above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection regulations. Google may publish summarized statistics about the +1 activities of the users or pass them on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or connected websites.

YouTube with extended data protection
Our website uses plugins from the website YouTube. The provider is Google Ireland Limited („Google“), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.
We use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not save any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video.

For example, regardless of whether you’re watching a video, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device. With the assistance of these cookies, YouTube will be able to obtain information about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud. These cookies will stay on your device until you delete them.
If necessary, further data processing processes can be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.
YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Sect.. 1 lit. f GDPR.

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
ReCAPTCHA is intended to check whether the data entry on our website (e.g. in a contact form) is carried out by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of website visitors based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, length of time the website visitor stays on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis are forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyzes run completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that an analysis is taking place.
