This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

  1. The use of Facebook Social Plugins

This offer uses social plugins from the facebook.com social network, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognised by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, with the terms “Like” or with a “thumb up” symbol), or they are marked with the “Facebook Social Plugin” add-on. The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user browses a web page from this offering that contains such a plugin, his or her browser builds a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and then integrated to the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to its knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding offer page. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or commenting, the corresponding information will be sent directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is the possibility that Facebook will find and save his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of the users, can be found in the Facebook privacy notice: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and to link it with his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the Internet site.

  1. +1 button from Google+

This offer uses the “+1” button of the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button is recognizable by the “+1” sign on a white or coloured background.

When a user calls up a web page of this offer which contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection to Google's servers. The content of the “+1” button is transmitted by Google directly to his browser and is then integrated into the website. The provider has therefore no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data are collected without a click on the button. Only with logged-in members, such data, including the IP address, are collected and processed.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights and settings for the protection of your privacy, can be found in Google's Privacy Notice on the “+1” button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/ policy/+ 1button.html and the FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.

  1. Twitter

This offer uses the https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognisable through terms such as “Twitter” or “Follow”, combined with a stylised blue bird. With the help of the buttons, it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter, or follow the provider on Twitter.

When a user calls up a web page of this offer that contains such a button, his browser builds a direct link to Twitter's servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted directly from Twitter to the user's browser. The provider has therefore no influence on the extent of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and informs the users according to its knowledge. According to this, only the user’s IP address is transmitted with the URL of the respective web page when the button is drawn, but is not used for purposes other than the representation of the button.

For more information, see Twitter's privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.
