More information about cookies and how our website works

A cookie is a text-only string of information that is passed to your computer's hard disk through your web browser, so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the 'lifetime' of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

The data collected will not be used to determine your personal identity or to create a link to the pseudonym under which your profile is generated without your explicity permission.

Like many websites, our website also uses cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service. If you also do not wish to receive these cookies then you can easily modify your web browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie. However, you may not be able to use all of the interactive features of our website if these cookies are disabled, and so in order to enjoy the site to its fullest we recommend that you leave them switched on.

Social Media Plug-ins

This online feature uses Social Media plug-ins for the social networks Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), Twitter (Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA),  YouTube (YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a subsidiary of Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) and Instagram (Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, a subsidiary of  Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA).

Social Media plug-ins are social network programs that are embedded on other companies’ websites. Embedding a Social Media plug-in causes personal and person-related data to be transmitted to the provider of the social media plug-in. Furthermore, if you are also logged on to a social network, an activated social media plug-in enables your activities to be assigned to your profile.

For data protection reasons, we have decided to initially block the social media plug-ins that are embedded on our website.

We do, however, offer you the possibility of using social media plug-ins if you so desire.

The plug-in is only activated by you clicking on the desired plug-in symbol, which we have pre-connected.

Please note that, when the plug-in you have selected is activated, this results in personal data being transmitted to the respective provider of the social media service.

The plug-in you have activated immediately sets up via your browser a connection to the server of the social media provider you have selected.

We would expressly point out that we have no influence on the scope, type and purpose of the processing of your personal and person-related data by the provider of the social media service and can inform you only according to our level of knowledge at this point.

The personal data collected and processed by the social media providers includes:

  • Your IP address

  • The address of the website on which the activated social plug-in is located,

  • Information about the browser used and the operating system you use,

  • The date and time our website was accessed or the social media plug-in was activated, respectively

The above-mentioned data is transmitted and stored when the plug-in is activated irrespective of whether you are a Member of the corresponding social media provider.

In addition we would refer you at this point explicitly to the social media provider’s privacy policy.

View Facebook's policy here.
View Twitter's policy
here.
View YouTube's policy
here.
View Instagram's policy
here.

If at the time of the interaction you are also logged on to a social media provider, such as Facebook, it is capable of learning your user name or, if stored, your real name, and assigning the information underlying the interaction to your profile correspondingly.

The above-mentioned data also makes it possible for the providers of the corresponding social media services to create pseudonymised, and potentially also individualised, usage profiles for their own purposes.

Where there is interaction with the activated plug-in (e.g. Facebook “likes”), the social media provider may possibly cause a cookie to be stored on your PC or device, which also makes it possible to identify your person or your profile.

If the plug-in is activated, your IP address is stored and a cookie saved irrespective of whether you are Member of one of the social media providers.

We would expressly point out that the duration of storage of such cookies is not known to us and we have no influence over it.

In the case of non-members, a usage profile might subsequently be created by any stored cookie, when you log on to a social media provider in the future.

Note:

Please note that when a social media plug-in is activated, your personal data can also be stored, processed and used in countries outside the European Union and thus possibly in countries that do not have an adequate and appropriate level of data protection corresponding to that in the European Union
