Facebook plug-in (2-click method)
If you do not want Facebook to collect information about you via our website or to link it to your user data stored by Facebook, do NOT select the relevant box on the websites.
Programmes (plug-in) from the social network, Facebook, are included on our website. These are operated exclusively by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The plug-ins are identified on our website through the Facebook logo or the addition 'Like/Recommend'. When visiting one of our websites which contains such a plug-in, your browser directly connects to the Facebook server, which in turn transmits the content of the plug-ins to your browser which integrates it into the website displayed. The information that you visited our website is thereby forwarded to Facebook. If you are logged into your personal Facebook account during your visit to our website, Facebook can assign the website visit to that account. By interacting with plug-ins, for example, by clicking the 'Like' button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there.
For information regarding the purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook, the further processing of it by Facebook and the use of your data as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook's Data Use Policy.
Google Plus +1 button (2-click method)
If you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect information about you via our website or associate it to your user data stored by Google, do NOT select the relevant boxes in the articles.
Our website uses the '+1' button from the social network, Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ('Google'). The plugins are identifiable by the '+1' symbol on a white or coloured background.
When you visit one of our website pages that contains such a symbol, your browser forms a direct connection to the Google servers. The contents of the '+1' button is transmitted from Google directly to your browser which embeds it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects via the button.
For information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing of it and the use of your data by Google as well as your rights in this respect and the settings options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Google's privacy policies.

Our website uses social plug-ins of the social network, twitter.com ('Twitter'). Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
When activating the integrated plug-ins, Twitter receives information about your IP address and which of our website's pages you accessed. If you are logged into Twitter at the same time, Twitter can attribute your visit to your Twitter account. If you press the Twitter button, the corresponding data is sent directly from your browser to Twitter and stored there.
