6. Social Media Plug-ins

Social media plugins from Facebook are used on our website to better personalise their use. To this end we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” buttons. These are a service provided by Facebook. When you visit one of our web pages containing this kind of plugin, your browser will create a direct link with Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is directly transmitted from Facebook to your browser and integrated by Facebook into the web page. By integrating the plugin, Facebook obtains the information that your browser has retrieved the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook at that moment. These data (including your IP address) are directly transmitted from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. When you interact with plugins by, say, using the “LIKE” or “SHARE” buttons, that information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. This information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and needs-appropriate design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook usage, interest and relationship profiles are created, for example to analyse your use of our website with regard to the ads you are shown 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 wish Facebook to associate data that it collects when you visit our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our website. The purpose and scope of data collected and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this connection and settings options to protect your privacy are set out in Facebook’s privacy policy: (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

7. Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API in order to present geographical information. When you use Google Maps, Google collects, processes and uses data about how you have used the map functions. For more information about how Google processes data, please refer to Google’s privacy policy. You can also modify your personal privacy settings at Google’s Privacy Centre. Detailed instructions on managing your data with regard to Google products are available here: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/3024190.

8. Embedded YouTube Videos

YouTube videos are embedded in parts of our website. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page containing the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube’s servers is created, so that YouTube knows which pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your browsing behaviour with your personal account. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand. When you launch a YouTube video, the provider places a cookie that collects information about your user behaviour. If you have deactivated cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not receive any such cookies when you view YouTube videos. However, YouTube stores non-personal usage information on other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block cookies in your browser.

11. Data security

When you visit our website we deploy the widely-used SSL (secure socket layer) procedure in conjunction with the highest available level of encryption supported by your browser. As a rule, this is 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v.3 technology instead. You can see whether individual pages of our website are encrypted because a lock or key symbol will display in your browser’s address bar. We furthermore take suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or wilful manipulation, against partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are improved on an ongoing basis in line with technological advances.
