The information about your use of this website produced by the cookie is normally transmitted to and stored on a server of Google in the USA. Recipient of the collected data is Google.

For this reason, when we use social plugins on our websites from social networks we integrate them in the following way: When you visit our websites, the social plugins are deactivated, i.e. no data is transmitted to the operators of these networks. If you want to use one of the networks, click on the respective social plugin to establish a direct connection to the server of the respective network.

On our website we provide you with social embeds of the social networks Facebook and Instagram. Social embeds are content from social networks (Facebook and Instagram), which we integrate on our website in such a way that you do not have to leave it. This is called "embedding". This involves the inclusion of posts, videos or other content from the companies Facebook Ireland Ltd.

Before clicking on the respective "Show content" button ("Activation button"), our data protection-friendly activation solution prevents your personal data, such as your IP address, from being transferred to the respective social network. As long as you do not click on the Activation Button to view content, you remain invisible to the operators of the respective social network.

By clicking the Activation Button you agree to the collection of your personal data by the respective network. The respective social network is responsible for the collection and processing of data, including the use of cookies and similar technologies by the social network. Presumably, specifically, information about which of our Internet pages you have visited, and your IP address are then transmitted to the social network, even if you do not have a profile with the respective network or are not logged in there at that time. If you are logged in as a member of the social networks, the network assigns the information to your personal user account. We do not receive any of this information.

Legal basis is for the processing is Art. 6 No. 1 sentence 1 lit. a, Art. 49 No. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.
