SocialMedia plugins with previous activation
On these webpages, plugins of the social networks, Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter, are used.
You can view the different logos, which contain the plugins, at the following links: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins or https://developers.google.com/+/plugins or https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons
In case of the standard involvement of plugins while invoking the webpages of our presence on the Internet (which contain such plugins), a link is established between your computer and the servers of the Social Media operators. Here, your IP address as well as the information, as to which of our Internet sites you have visited, is forwarded to the servers of Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus in the USA. This is independent of whether you have registered or are logged in on Facebook, Google Plus or Twitter. Data is transferred even in case of users who are not registered or logged in on these sites.
We have decided to deactivate the corresponding buttons for the time being so that you can retain the control over your data. You can identify this from the greyed out buttons. Without your express approval in the form of activation of the buttons, no link is established with the servers of the social networks, and no data is transferred.
Only when you activate the button labels, the buttons become active (highlighted in colour) and a direct link is established to the social networks.
With the activation, you give your consent for the transfer of your data to Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
If you are connected with one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the collected information is also allocated to your corresponding profiles.
You can only prevent this allocation by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons.
Using Facebook plugins
Plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), are used on these webpages.
If you invoke webpages of our Internet presence, which are provided with such a plugin, a link is established with the Facebook servers and the plugin is displayed on the webpage through a notification to your browser. Which of our webpages you have visited is transmitted to the Facebook server. If you are logged in on Facebook, Facebook allocates this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button, entering a comment), even this information is allocated to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin. If you do not want Facebook to assign all acquired information to your Facebook profile immediately, you must either log out of your account before visiting our site or must use add-on provided by Facebook for your browser http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/.

If you invoke a webpage of our Internet presence, which is provided with the “+1” button, a link is established with the Google servers in the USA, and the button is displayed on the Internet page through a notification to your browser. Here, your IP address as well as the information, as to which of our Internet sites you have visited, is forwarded to the Google server. This is independent of whether you have registered with or are logged in on Google Plus. Data is transferred even in case of users who are not registered or logged in on these sites. The “+1” button is not used to record your visits on the Internet. When displaying a “+1” button, Google does not permanently log your browser history and also does not analyse your visit to a page with “+1” button in another manner. Google saves the data of your visit for about two weeks for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured as per the individual profiles, user names or URLs, and is also not forwarded to us.
Moreover, if you are a member of Google Plus, and if your are logged in on Google Plus during the period in which you use the plugin, the information collected about your website visit is linked to your Google Plus Account and disclosed to other users. Even in case of interactions, which are possible with various Google plugins, the corresponding information about you is collected and transmitted to Google and stored there. For an overview of the different types of Google plugins, log on to:
If you have made your profile publically accessible in the Google Plus settings, your “+1” can be superimposed by Google as information together with your profile names and your photo in Google services, e.g. in search results or in your Google profile, or at other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. If you do not want Google to allocate the collected information directly to your Google Plus profile, you must first log out of Google Plus before visiting our site.
Other information about the collection and usage of the data by Google, about your relevant rights and options for protecting your privacy can be found in the Data Protection information of Google: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html.
