    Section 4. Cookies

We use cookies when you visit our website. A cookie is a small file that contains a specific sequence of characters and can be used to clearly identify your browser. Cookies help us to improve the convenience and quality of our services in a number of ways, such as by saving user settings for use in said user’s next session. Cookies allow us to analyse your user behaviour in anonymised form whenever you visit our website.

The use of cookies does not enable us to receive personal data pertaining to you. It is not possible for us to trace the information saved in the cookies back to a specific person or draw any conclusions with regard to individual visitors.

Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically.

You can also use our website without cookies. In your browser, you can deactivate the option for saving cookies, place restrictions on which websites you allow to use cookies, or set up notifications that will appear before every time a cookie is saved. You can use the data protection function in your browser to delete the cookies from your hard disk at any time. Taking such action may limit the functionality and user-friendliness of our website, though this will not necessarily be the case.

     Section 5. Social bookmarks

On our website, we use “social plug-ins” from the following social networks:

  • Facebook, run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
  • Google Plus, run by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
  • Twitter, run by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA

These plug-ins are indicated by the corresponding icons on the left-hand side of your screen.

In the interests of protecting your data as effectively as possible, these buttons are deactivated in order to ensure that no data is sent to the owners of these social networks as soon as you load the page. These plug-ins can be activated if you so wish. No data can be transmitted to the social networks in question until you activate the corresponding social plug-ins. If you do not activate the social plug-ins, they will not contact the servers of Facebook or any other social network operators.

If a social plug-in is activated, certain data will be sent to the social network in question, e.g. the user’s IP address, information on the user’s browser and operating system, the website the user is visiting and the date and time of the visit. During the course of this communication, data from a website run by the social media provider in question will also be loaded onto our website.

The social plug-in provider will receive information on what websites the user visits. In some cases, this may occur regardless of whether or not the user is logged in to the social network run by the social plug-in provider in question (e.g. Facebook). The provider may also process this data outside of the EU, and may also be able to generate individual usage profiles. We have no control over how, to what extent or for what purpose your data is processed by the providers of the social media services in question.

Below is some information on the social plug-ins used on our website:

  1. a) Facebook

The Facebook plug-in is indicated by the Facebook logo. If you activate the Facebook plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. Facebook will transmit the content of the plug-in directly to your browser, which will incorporate it into the website.

As such, we have no control over what data Facebook collects using this plug-in, and the information that follows is provided to the best of our knowledge:

Embedding the plug-in allows Facebook to receive the information that you have opened the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can link your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. by clicking the “Like” button or adding a comment, your browser will transmit the corresponding information directly to Facebook, where it will be saved. Even if you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to learn and save your IP address. For information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection, how Facebook processes and uses data it has collected, your rights regarding this issue, and how you can alter your privacy settings on Facebook, please consult the Facebook privacy policy.

  1. b) Google+

The “+1” button for the social network Google Plus is embedded in our website. The button is indicated by the “+1” sign against a red background.

If you open our website, your browser will only connect directly to Google’s servers if you activate the “+1” button by clicking on it. Google will transmit the content of the plug-in directly to your browser and incorporate it into the website. When the plug-in is activated, Google will receive the information that the user in question has opened our website, among other things.

We hereby expressly inform you that we have no control over how, to what extent or for what purpose your data is collected by Google using the Google+ button.

For information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection, how Google processes and uses data it has collected, your rights regarding this issue and how you can alter your privacy settings on Google+, please consult the Google privacy policy.

  1. c) Twitter

Finally, a plug-in for the short messaging service Twitter is embedded on our website. This plug-in is indicated by the Twitter logo. If you open our website, your browser will only connect directly to Twitter’s servers if you activate the “Twitter” button by clicking on it.

When this button is activated, Twitter will receive the information that you have visited our website using your IP address. If you press the Twitter button while you are logged into your Twitter account, you can post a link to the content of our website using your Twitter profile. This will allow Twitter to link your user account with your visit to our website. We hereby expressly inform you that we, the providers of this website, do not receive any information regarding the content of the data transmitted in the above manner or how said information is used by Twitter.
