Plug-ins, links and buttons for social media websites are used for advertising and informational purposes, on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f of the GDPR. The embedding of these elements means that data is sent to the corresponding social media provider when the page is accessed, and data may also be sent to third countries. This data is saved and processed by the providers, and in particular, a provider is able to recognise website visits if you are signed into that social media provider at the time. When you ‘share’ or otherwise pass on (‘like’) posts on our website in a social network, this is sent to the provider and saved, possibly also in your user profile. Social networks use this data for commercial purposes, marketing, advertising and other purposes, with particular reference to creating profiles for you and providing personalised adverts.
We have integrated components of the Facebook company on our website. Facebook is a social network. Facebook enables users of social networks to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook is provided by the data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/.

In addition, various configuration options are available to prevent data transfer to Facebook, e.g. the Facebook blocker from the provider Webgraph, which is available at http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/. is available. These applications can be used by the data subject to prevent data transmission to Facebook.

We have integrated components from Twitter on our website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users use so-called "tweets", e.g. Short messages, publish and distribute, which are limited to 140 characters. These short messages are available to everyone, including those who are not logged into Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. You can also use Twitter to address a wide audience using hashtags, links or retweets.
The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the end device of the person concerned is automatically requested to display the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at: https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons.
In the course of this technical process, Twitter learns which subpage of our website was visited by the person concerned. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to retransmit the content of this website in order to enable our users to introduce this website into the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.
The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter can be found at: https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=de.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. This does not affect data that we have stored for other purposes.
After you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be stored in a blacklist by us or the newsletter service provider in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in compliance with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR). Storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage provided that your interests outweigh our legitimate interests.
