Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as
“Google”. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files
stored on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. On our website, we use Google Analytics with the suffix ““_gat._anonymizeIp”. Your IP will be shortened and thereby anonymised by Google within a member state of the European Union or other signatory states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The information recorded by these cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your website visit including your IP address will be transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information at the request of the website operator for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage.

We use components from the provider Twitter on our website. Twitter is a service of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. Every single time one of our websites equipped with such a component is accessed, these components prompt the browser you are using to download the relevant depiction of the Twitter components. This process means that Twitter will be informed which concrete website of our Internet presence you are currently visiting. We have no influence on the data that Twitter records in this respect, nor on the scope of the data recorded by Twitter. As far as we are aware, Twitter records the URL of the respective website accessed as well as the IP address of the user but does not use it for any purpose other than depicting the Twitter component. Further information relating to this can be found in Twitter's data protection policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.
On our website, we also use social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognised by use of one of the Facebook logos or are identified by the suffix “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be seen here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. If you access
our site and remained logged into Facebook while you do so, Facebook will use the information collected by the components to recognise which concrete site you are visiting and associate this information with your personal Facebook account. If, for example, you click on the “Like” button or write a relevant comment, this information will be transferred to your personal user account on Facebook and stored there. Furthermore, the information that you have visited our website will be forwarded to Facebook. This occurs whether or not you click on the component. If you want to disassociate the transfer and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website from Facebook, you must log out from Facebook before you visit our website. The data protection declaration of Facebook gives more detailed information about this, in particular the recording and usage of data by Facebook, the associated rights and settings you can use to protect your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/. There are also external tools available on the market that can block Facebook social plugins using add-ons for all current browsers http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/. The purpose and scope of data collection and its processing and usage of the data by Facebook as well as the associated rights and settings to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection declaration of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
