The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required to do so by law or if third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data.

The deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics gives the website visitor more control over which data is collected by Google Analytics on the websites accessed. If you do not want your data to be saved, please install the deactivation tool provided by Google at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de .

We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not want this, you can deactivate this via the Ads Preferences Manager ( http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de ).

You can find more information on this at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/ (general information on Google Analytics and data protection ). We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been expanded to include the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Use of Facebook plugins

This website uses plugins from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

If you call up websites on our website that have such a plugin, a connection to the Facebook servers is established and the plugin is displayed on the website by notifying your browser. This transmits to the Facebook server which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button, posting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin.

You can find more information about the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy in Facebook’s data protection information.
