When you visit our websites, the IP address currently used by your PC, date and time, browser type and operating system of your PC as well as the pages you visit will be recorded and saved temporarily. However, this information will not allow us to draw conclusions about your personal data and such conclusions are not intended, either. These so-called server logdata must be saved for technical reasons and to ensure system security. The data are evaluated in anonymised form by the service provider contracted by us exclusively for statistical purposes and to improve the quality of our website. The server logdata will not be linked to the personal data of any specific natural person. In particular, the server logdata will not be merged with any other data sources.


3.4) Social Plugin

Facebook is a social network, operated by Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). When you visit a page of our website that contains a Facebook Plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the Plugin content to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. We have no influence on the data gathered by the Plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge.


If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the Plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or by entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our Website. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the Plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook. For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook's privacy policy: Further you can block Facebook Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker“.
