It is normally possible to use our website without disclosing personal data. To the extent that personal data (such as name, mailing address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this always occurs on a voluntary basis to the extent possible. Such data is not shared with third parties without your express consent.
We point out that the transmission of data over the Internet (such as through communication via e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.
Plugins of the social network Facebook (provider: Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) are integrated into our pages. You can recognise the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or 'like' button on our page. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US.
When you visit our pages, a direct connection is created between your browser and the Facebook server through the plugin. Through this, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our page with your IP address. When you click on the Facebook 'like' button while you are logged into your Facebook account you can link the contents of our pages to your Facebook profile. Through this, Facebook can associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We point out that, as the provider of the pages, we receive no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by Facebook. You can find further information on this in Facebook's data policy at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

Our pages use functions from Google +1. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collection and sharing of information: You can publish information worldwide with the aid of the Google +1 button. Through the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for a topic as well as information on the page you have viewed by clicking on +1. Your +1 can be displayed as suggestions together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile or in other places on websites and visual displays on the Internet. Google records information on your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name selected for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace a different name you have used for sharing content through your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information from you.
Our website uses plugins from the Google-operated site YouTube. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages that is provided with a YouTube plugin, a connection is created to the servers of YouTube. This communicates to the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. When you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
