Use of Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)

To display our contents correctly and with an appealing graphic design, independent of the used browser, we use script and font libraries on this website, e.g. Google Webfonts ( Google Webfonts are transferred in the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support the Google Webfonts or blocks access, the contents will be displayed in a standard font. The selection of script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible that the operators of such libraries might collect data, however, it is not clear if so and for which purposes.

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to display current geographic information. During use of Google Maps, Google collects, processes and uses data with regard to the use of map functions by users. Further information about data processing by Google Maps can be found in the Google-Privacy-Policy. You can change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre there.

Embedded YouTube Videos

On some of our websites, Youtube videos are embedded. Operator of these plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to the servers of Youtube will be established. Youtube will be informed about which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surf behaviour. This can be prevented by logging out of your Youtube account before. If a Youtube video is started, the operator uses cookies which collect information about the user behaviour. If storage of cookies for the GoogleAd program has been deactivated, it is not likely that such cookies will be taken during watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube stores non-personal use information in other cookies. To prevent that, you have to block cookies storage in your browser.

Social Plugins

Our websites use Social Plugins of the providers listed below. Those plugins are marked by the corresponding logo. Via these plugins, it might be that personal data are sent by the service providers and used by them. We prevent such unconscious and undesired data collection and transfer to the service provider by a 2 click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it first has to be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only by activation of this plugin, the collection of information and their transfer to the service provider is triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plugins or their use. We have no influence on which data an activated plugin is collecting and how they are used by the provider. Currently it has to be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the providers will b established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be collected and used. It might also be that service providers try to store cookies on the used computer. Which data is collected and how it is used can be looked up in the data protection notes of the particular service provider.
