3.0 Plug-Ins und APIs

3.1 Social media plugins

On our website, we provide you with certain social media functions, in particular the possibility of sharing content on Facebook, tweeting, etc. The function in question can be found on the individual pages under “Share”.

We provide you with plugins for the following social networks:

  • Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA,
  • Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA; and
  • Twitter Inc.,1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Whenever you click on a social network icon, you will be linked to the respective social network on which you wish to perform the selected functions, e.g. share content on Facebook or tweet on Twitter. To do this, however, you must log in to your account or already be logged in. 

If you select one of the functions provided and click on the icon of the social network concerned, a direct connection will be established between your browser and the server of the social network concerned. This gives the network the information that you have visited our website with your IP address and clicked on the link. If you open a link to a network while you are logged into your account on that network, the content on our website may be linked to your network profile, meaning that the network can directly associate your visit to our website with your user account. If you wish to prevent this, you should log out before clicking on any links. The connection is made in any case if you log into the respective network after clicking on the link.

3.2 Link to our own social media presence

We have embedded links on our website to our social media profiles in the following networks:

  • Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA,
  • Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA; and
  • Twitter Inc.,1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

If you click on a social network icon, you will be automatically forwarded to our profile on the respective social network. To use the functions of that network, you may have to log into your user account on the respective network.

If you open a link to one of our social media profiles, a direct connection will be established between your browser and the server of the social network concerned. This gives the network the information that you have visited our website with your IP address and clicked on the link. If you open a link to a network while you are logged into your account on that network, the content of our website may be linked to your network profile, meaning that the network can directly associate your visit to our website with your user account. If you wish to prevent this, you should log out before clicking on any links. The connection is made in any case if you log into the respective network after clicking on the link.

3.3 YouTube plugin

On our website, we have embedded plugins of the video portal YouTube provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”). YouTube is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Every time you visit a page that offers one or several YouTube video clips, a direct connection is established between your browser and a server of YouTube in the USA. In the process, information about your visit and your IP address are stored. If you interact with YouTube plugins (e.g. pressing the start button), this information is also transferred to YouTube and stored there.

More information on the collection and use of your data by YouTube can be found in the privacy policies of YouTube or Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

The legal basis for processing data for this purpose is to pursue our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

If you have a YouTube user account and do not want YouTube to collect data about you via this website and link them to your YouTube member data, you must log out of YouTube before visiting this website.

YouTube also accesses the Google Analytics analysis tool via an iFrame in which the video is viewed. Google Analytics is a tracking tool belonging to YouTube, to which we do not have access. You can prevent tracking by Google Analytics by using the deactivation tools that Google offers for some Internet browsers.

3.4 Google Maps

On our website, we use Google Maps API (Application Programming Interface, “Google Maps”) provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the visual representation of geographic information (maps). When you use Google Maps, information about the use of our website including your IP address is transmitted to a server belonging to Google in the USA and stored there.

The legal basis for processing data for this purpose is to pursue our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

It is possible to deactivate the Google Maps service and prevent data being transferred to Google by deactivating JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that if you do so, you will not be able to use the map view.

More information about the collection, processing and use of your data by Google and your rights in this regard can be found in the privacy policy of Google at https://policies.google.com/privacy, as well as in the additional terms of use for Google Maps or Google Earth at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps/.
