3. Our website uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your PC and enable Google to analyse the use of our website. The information generated by cookies on your use of our website (including your IP address) is as a rule transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Before that, however, your IP address was shortened by Google due to the anonymising requirements of the member states of the European Union or signatory states to the treaty on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases, and shortened there. Under commission from us Google will use the transmitted information to evaluate the use of our website, to prepare a report on the use of our website and to render other services to us in this connection.

The IP address transmitted in connection with Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. If you wish to prevent the use of cookies you can change the settings of your internet browser in such a way that cookies are refused entry.

5. Plugins from the facebook.com social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94205, USA (hereinafter: "Facebook“), are integrated in our website. You will recognize the Facebook plugins from the Facebook logo or the "Like Button" on our website. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found at developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins. When you visit our website, what the plugin does is to create a connection between your browser and the Facebook servers. In this way Facebook gets the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If, in doing so, you are also logged in as a Facebook member, Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook user account. If for example you click on the "Like Button" or enter a comment, this information too is transmitted direct from your browser to Facebook and stored there. In addition you are enabled to link our website at Facebook with the pages of your user profile, provided that you are also logged in at Facebook. May we point out that, as the operator of our website, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by Facebook. Further information on this and on your rights and the means of protecting your online privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection statement. If you wish to prevent Facebook allocating the visit to our website to your Facebook user account and thus collecting data about you, please log out from your Facebook user account before you visit our website.

YouTube uses cookies to collect information on the viewers of the videos. If you visit a page of our website that is fitted with a YouTube plugin, you are connected to the servers of YouTube, so that YouTube is informed which page of our website you have visited. Should you also be logged in on your YouTube account during your visit to our website, YouTube can allocate the visit to our website to your personal profile.
