Remarketing tags of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are also integrated on our pages. When you visit our pages, the remarketing tags establish a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. As a result, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. This enables Facebook to assign visits to our pages to your user account. We can use the information obtained in this way to display Facebook Ads. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook.

Our website uses a widget of the Twitter. These embedded tweets and buttons are offered by Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be recognised by terms such as "twitter" or "follow", associated with a stylised blue bird. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.
When a user accesses our page that contains such a button, his/her browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user's browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this plug-in and informs the users according to its state of knowledge. According to this, only the user's IP address and the URL of the respective website will be transmitted when the button is obtained, but will not be used for purposes other than displaying the button. Further information can be found in the Twitter privacy statement at http://www.twitter.com/privacy.
