The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google will previously truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link.
In view of the discussion about the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“ and therefore IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to exclude direct personal references.

(g) Use of Facebook social plugins
This app uses, for simplified registration, so-called social plugins („plugins“) of the social network Facebook , which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA („Facebook“). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition „Social plugin from Facebook“ or „Facebook social plugin“. An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here.
When you access a page of our app that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by it.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the „Like“ button or commenting, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and tailoring Facebook pages to meet your needs. Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles for this purpose, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the „Facebook Blocker“.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection information..
(h) Use of Google social plugins
Google Plus: to simplify registration, our app uses the „+1″“ button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States („Google“). The button can be recognized by the sign „+1″ on a white or colored background.
If you call up a website of our Internet presence that contains such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Google. The content of the „+1″“ button is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the buttons. Only with logged-in members is such data, among other things the IP address, collected and processed.
For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy, please refer to Google’s data protection information on the „+1″- button and the FAQs..
If you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect information about you via our website and link it to your Google stored member information, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our website.
