Integration of services and third-party contents
This online offer can contain information of web pages of third parties (like YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics). This always presupposes that the content providers (hereinafter third-party providers) detect the user’s IP addresses as without IP addresses they would not be able to send the contents to the user’s respective browser. An IP address is thus required to display these contents. We make every attempt to use only media on our web pages provided by other parties who use the IP addresses only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on the third-party providers if they store the IP addresses e.g. for statistical purposes. In so far as it is known to us, we inform the users.

Using Facebook Social Plugins
This website uses social plugins („plugins“) from the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA („Facebook“). The plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white „f“ on blue tile or a ‚thumbs-up“ sign) or by the description „Facebook Social Plugin“. The list and the look of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you call up a web page on our Internet site that includes a plugin of such type, your browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook servers. Facebook sends the plugin’s content directly to your browser which will integrate it into the website. We have no control over the data that Facebook collects via this plugin and would therefore like to clarify how we believe the system works:
The integrated plugins inform Facebook that you have viewed the relevant pages on our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can add your site visit to your Facebook account. If you use the plugin, such as to leave a comment or click the Like button, your browser will send the relevant information to Facebook, where it will be stored. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still a possibility that Facebook will detect and save the IP address you are using.
Please view Facebook’s data protection policy via the following link for more information about the purpose and extent of this data collection as well as how Facebook processes and uses it. The page also contains information about your data protection rights and how to modify your Facebook settings to protect your privacy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to collect data about your visit to our website and add it to other data you have stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
