Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by an IP anonymization in order to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Use of social plugin
These social medial plugins are software developed and provided by the aforementioned social media services, which enable the automated exchange of data between the website and the social media services. Thus, among other things, data can be dynamically transferred from one of the aforementioned social media services to the Website. At the same time, data of the users of this website may also be transferred to the social media service, including the IP address. You can recognize the use of such social plugins by the specially marked buttons. Personal data may already be exchanged with the respective social media service when the website is displayed or loaded. In these cases, users have the option of rejecting this data exchange, if necessary, by changing the settings of their user account on the website of the respective social media service.
This website uses social media plugins of the following services:
– “Facebook I-Like” or “Facebook Like”, operated by: Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States.
You can recognize the use of the Facebook plugin on the website by the Facebook icon (white F on blue tile or “thumbs up icon”) on a corresponding button.
Further information from Facebook on how to use the corresponding plugin and the corresponding social media service can be found at: Further information from Facebook on the so-called data usage guidelines can be obtained at:
– “Twitter”: operated by: Twitter, Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, United States.
You can recognize the use of the Twitter plugin on the website by a display of the Twitter logos (white “t” on a blue background or blue bird) on the corresponding button.
For more information from Twitter on how to use this plugin and the corresponding social media service, please visit For more information from Twitter about their privacy policy, please visit:
– “Google +”: our website uses the buttons of the social network Google+, which is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). When a user calls up a web page of this online offer that contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The content of the buttons is transmitted by Google directly to the user’s browser, which then integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Google collects with the buttons.
According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the button. Only for logged-in members of Google+, such data, including the IP address, are collected and processed. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as the related rights and settings options of users to protect their privacy can be found in Google’s privacy policy on the “+1″ button: and the FAQ: If a user is a Google+ member and does not want Google to collect data about him/her via this website and link it to your membership data stored at Google, the user must log out of Google Plus and delete the cookies belonging to Google within the browser before visiting this website.

By clicking on one of these buttons, you consent to the use of this plugin and thus also to the transfer of personal data to the respective social media service. We have no influence on the type and scope of the data transmitted and on its further processing. According to our current knowledge, the respective social media service is informed about your IP address and the website using the plugin. If you are logged in to the corresponding social media service platform at the same time, the information can be directly assigned to your user profile. If you would like to avoid such a collection of profile information, you should log out of the respective social media service platform.

Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the display of this content. We endeavor to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
You have the right to free information about your stored data at any time, as well as the right to correction, deletion or blocking. Please contact us at the address given in the imprint. We will be happy to answer any further questions you may have about our privacy policy and the processing of your personal data.
