In addition, we must check, in accordance with the relevant legal regulations, whether you are the actual owner of the e-mail address provided and would like to receive the newsletter.

Third-party providers – contents and services –

The provider reserves the right to integrate services and content from third parties, such as Google Maps, YouTube videos, graphics from third parties, RSS feeds, etc., onto the website. For the successful representation of these contents an inquiry of your IP address is necessary by the third offerer. The provider makes every effort to include only those offers from third parties on the website which use the IP address requested only for the successful presentation of the respective offer. However, the use of your IP address for statistical purposes beyond this cannot be excluded by the provider. In the event of positive knowledge of this, the provider will point this out separately.

Social Media Plugins

The provider uses so-called social media plug-ins of social networks on the Internet pages, which are often provided and operated outside Germany and the EU, namely in the USA and other countries.

Use of Facebook Plugins

The provider uses plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA on its Internet pages. You can recognize Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue background) or by the “Like button” (thumb up). You can view a list of Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If you call up a website of the provider which contains such a plugin, your Internet browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers; the plugin content is transmitted directly to your Internet browser and is integrated into the displayed website by it.

The provider therefore has no control over data collection and its use, which are collected by Facebook due to this connection. Due to the direct connection with the Facebook servers, Facebook receives information that you have visited the provider’s website with your IP address. While you are logged into your Facebook account, Facebook has the option of assigning the retrieval of the Internet service to your Facebook account. When you press the “Like Button” or other interactions with Facebook plugins, Facebook stores the information contained therein and assigns it to your user account as long as you are logged into your Facebook account.

If you do not wish Facebook to collect, store and assign this additional data (beyond the IP address and page of the provider) to your user account, you have the option of logging out of your Facebook account before accessing the provider’s website.

If you call up a website of the provider which contains these functions, your Internet browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Twitter, the transmission of the Twitter functions takes place directly to your Internet browser and is integrated into the displayed website by this.

The provider therefore has no control over data collection and its use, which are collected by Twitter due to this connection.

Due to the direct connection with the Twitter servers, Twitter may receive information that you have visited the provider’s website with your IP address. While you are logged into your Twitter account, Twitter has the option of storing personal data and assigning it to your user account. It is not possible for the provider to provide precise information on the collection and use of data.
