The use of our website without cookies
Selbstverständlich können Sie unsere Website auch nutzen, ohne dass Cookies verwendet werden. Sie können hierzu die Verwendung von Cookies jederzeit über die Einstellungen Ihres Internet-Browsers generell ablehnen („deaktivieren“) oder sich das Setzen von Cookies anzeigen lassen und dann im Einzelfall entscheiden, ob Sie Cookies akzeptieren („Cookie-Warnung“). Das Ablehnen oder Anzeigen von Cookies kann sich auf die Funktionalität unserer Website auswirken.
Plugins provided by the external social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are installed on our website. The Facebook plugins can be identified by the Facebook logo or the Like button (German: “Gefällt mir”) on our website. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found by visiting here.
Every time you visit our website, the Facebook plugin establishes a direct connection between your web browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our website from your Internet protocol (IP) address. If you click on the Facebook Like button while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website with your Facebook profile. By doing so, Facebook can link your visit to our website to your Facebook user account. This information is transmitted to and stored by Facebook. Please note that we as the provider of this website have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or their use by Facebook. Further information on this can be found in the Facebook Data Use Policy by visiting here.
If you do not wish for Facebook to be able to link your visit to our website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
Functions provided by the microblogging service Twitter are installed on our website. These functions are provided by Twitter (Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA). By using Twitter and the “re-tweet” function, the websites that you visit are linked to your Twitter account and shared with other users. This information is also transmitted to Twitter at the same time.

Our website uses the +1 button provided by the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), hereinafter referred to as “Google”. This button can be identified by the “+1” icon on a white or coloured background. By using the Google +1 button, you can publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button enables you and other users to receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Every time you visit one of the pages of our website containing the +1 button, your web browser establishes a direct connection with the Google servers. The content of the +1 button is directly transmitted from Google to your web browser and then embedded into the website by the browser. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Google collects using the +1 button. Google stores the information that you have given a “+1” for content, in addition to your IP address and information on the website that you were viewing when you clicked on the +1 button. Your “+1” recommendations can be displayed as references together with your profile name and photo in Google services (such as in search results or your Google profile) or at other locations on websites and in Internet advertisements.
To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need to have a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and contains at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have received other identifying information from you.
