The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google LLC on servers in the United States.
IP-anonymisation is active on this website. Within member states of the European Union and the European Economic Area, IP addresses are shortened. Therefore the website cannot establish a direct link between the IP address and your identity. Within the framework of the Data Processing Agreement between the website operator and Google LLC, the latter uses this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Social Media Plugins
This website uses Facebook Social Plugins which is operated by Facebook Inc. (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo or the terms “like”, “thumbs up” or “share” in the company’s corporate colours (white and blue). The list and the look of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
The plugin directly connects your browser with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website. The website operator, therefore, has no effect on the nature and amount of data that Facebook Inc. gathers using this plugin, and informs you accordingly. For the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook Inc., refer to https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084.
By integrating the plugin, Facebook Inc. receives information that you have accessed the corresponding page of the offer. The possibility exists that Facebook Inc. recognises your IP address and stores it. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. When you interact with the plugins, for example, press the “like” or the “share” button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook Inc. and stored there. If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to collect data on this offer and link it to your member data stored by Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
This website uses the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). When a user visits a website containing such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The content related to the “+1” button is transmitted from Google LLC directly to the browser which embeds the latter into the website. The provider, therefore, has no influence on the amount of data that Google LLC collects with the button. If you are logged in to Google + while clicking the “+1” button, you automatically share the website content via your public profile.
According to Google LLC, no personal information is collected without clicking on the button. Such data, including the IP address, is collected and processed, only if you are a member and logged in. If you do not want Google LLC to collect data on this offer and link it to your member data stored by Google LLC, you must log out of Google + before visiting the website. For further information about the “+1” button refer here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html.
This website uses the service Twitter buttons. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). When a user visits a page on this website which contains such a button, its browser establishes a direct connection to Twitter’s servers. The content related to the Twitter buttons is transmitted from Twitter directly to the user’s browser. The provider, therefore, has no impact on the amount of data that Twitter Inc. gathers using the plugin, and informs the user according to his knowledge. According to Twitter Inc., only the user’s IP address is identified and stored.
