Using social plugins from Facebook, Google+, Twitter using the "2-click solution"
On our website so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social networks Facebook and Google+ and the microblogging service Twitter are used. These services are offered by the companies Facebook Inc., Google Inc. and Twitter Inc. ("Provider").

Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103.

In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the site via a so-called "2-click solution". This integration ensures that when you visit a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection with the servers of Facebook, Google and Twitter is made. Only when you activate the plugins and thus give your consent to the data transfer, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Google, Facebook or Twitter. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly from the provider to your browser and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the corresponding provider or are currently not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there. If you interact with the plugins, for example, the "Like" - press the "+1" - or the "Tweet" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information will also be posted on the social network or on your Twitter account and displayed there to your contacts.ctly via the contact details in our imprint.count and displayed there to your contacts.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers as well as their rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of the provider.
