Privacy Policy on the use and usage of Twitter

The data controller has integrated Twitter components into this website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and distribute so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including those not registered on Twitter. However, the tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user’s tweets. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons . As part of this technical process, Twitter obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the person concerned is logged in to Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned accesses our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the respective Twitter account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated into our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Twitter.

Twitter always receives information via the Twitter component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged on to Twitter at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not wish to transmit this information to Twitter in this way, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Twitter account before accessing our website.

The current Twitter privacy policy can be found at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=de.

Privacy Policy on the use and enjoyment of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of the Facebook association on this website. Facebook is a social network.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland if a person concerned lives within the EU.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of the person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the „Like“ button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Facebook receives information through the Facebook component that the individual concerned has visited our website whenever the individual concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, whether or not the individual clicks on the Facebook component. If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in this way, he or she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

Facebook’s published privacy policy, available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, discloses Facebook’s collection, processing and use of personal information. It also explains what settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

Privacy Policy on the use and application of Youtube

In our internet presence we use YouTube. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as „YouTube“.

By being certified according to the EU-US data protection shield („EU-US Privacy Shield“), Google and its subsidiary YouTube guarantee that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.

We use YouTube in conjunction with the „Extended Privacy Mode“ function to display videos for you. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the function „Extended data protection mode“ means that the data described in more detail below will only be transmitted to YouTube’s server if you actually start a video.

Without this „Extended Data Protection“, a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you access one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is necessary in order to display the video on our website via your Internet browser. YouTube will record and process at least your IP address, the date and time and the website you visited. In addition, a connection to the advertising network „DoubleClick“ is established by Google.

If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube assigns the connection information to your YouTube account. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.

YouTube permanently stores cookies on your terminal device via your Internet browser for the purpose of functionality and analysis of user behaviour. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option of preventing the cookies from being saved by making a setting in your Internet browser. You can find more information on this under „Cookies“ above.

Further information on the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard is held by Google in the „Google Privacy Policy“ section of this website policies.google.com/privacy posted privacy notices.
