Third-party content such as videos, maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated into the website. This integration always assumes that the providers of these contents (“third party providers”) are aware of the IP addresses of the users. You can prevent or block this by making appropriate browser settings. This may result in functional restrictions on the website. In general, we are not responsible for the content of websites to which links are provided.
Google Web Fonts
We use so-called Web Fonts, which are provided by Google. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required fonts to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to the servers of Google. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform presentation. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. You can object to this by adjusting and changing your browser settings accordingly.
We also use the service “Google Maps” from Google to display maps or map sections. For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to the Google servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive offer of our website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO. In principle, you have a right of revocation, whereby you must contact Google directly to exercise this right.
Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield. You can find information on this at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” on our website from Google Inc. reCAPTCHA is intended to check whether the data input on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human being or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis purposes, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.
Plug-ins from Instagram LLC. are used on our website. The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo e.g. in the form of an “Instagram Camera”. When you visit our website equipped with Instagram plug-in, your browser connects directly to Instagram servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and incorporated into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has visited the appropriate page on our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to an Instagram server in the United States and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. The same applies if you interact with the plug-in and press the “Instagram” button. The information is also published to your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.

Our website uses plug-ins from the blogging service Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc. The plug-ins are marked with a Twitter logo, for example in the form of a blue or grey “Twitter bird”. By clicking on the Twitter logo, the plug-in establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Twitter directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through the integration, Twitter receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Twitter or are not currently logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Twitter server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the “Twitter” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Twitter server and stored there. The information is also published on your Twitter account and displayed to your contacts. If you do not want Twitter to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Twitter account, you must log out of Twitter before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the Twitter plug-ins from loading by using add-ons for your browser.

We use the youtube.com platform to post our own videos and make them publicly available. YouTube is the offer of a third party not affiliated with us, namely YouTube LLC. When you visit our site, which is equipped with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers is established, since we directly integrate videos stored on YouTube. During this integration, content from the YouTube website is displayed in parts of a browser window. However, the YouTube videos are only retrieved and a connection to the YouTube servers is established by a separate click. In the event that you follow a link to YouTube, we would like to point out that YouTube stores the data of its users (e.g. personal information, IP address) in accordance with its own data usage guidelines and uses it for business purposes. However, this information cannot be assigned to you unless you have registered/logged in to YouTube or another Google service (e.g. Google+) before you access the page. You can prevent this association by logging out of Google’s services. In general, once you start playing a embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube will only store cookies on your device that do not contain any personally identifiable information unless you are currently signed in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.
We also use the provider Vimeo for the integration if videos. If you call up one of our websites equipped with such a plug-in, a direct connection to the Vimeo servers is established, since we integrate the videos directly. During this integration, content from the Vimeo website is displayed in parts of a browser window. This transfers to the Vimeo server which of our internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When you use the plug-in, for example by clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
