USE OF SCRIPT LIBRARIES (GOOGLE WEBFONTS)
We are using script- and font libraries e.g. Google Webfonts (https://google.com/webfonts/) to display all our contents correctly and graphically appealing for all browsers. Google Webfonts are transmitted to the cache of your browser to prevent the multiple loading. In case your browser does not support Google Webfonts or is blocking the access the contents are displayed in standard font.
When opening script libraries and font libraries this automatically releases a connection to the owner of the library. In this case it is theoretically possible – but currently unclear if and for what purpose – that the owner of the relevant libraries may collect data.
You can find the data protection guideline of library owner Google here: http:/www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Our websites are using social plug-ins of below specified providers. The plug-ins can be identified by the corresponding logo.
Plug-ins might possibly send information, also including personalized data, to the service provider and he possibly may get use of it.

To activate a desired social plug-in one has to click on the corresponding button first. Only this activation of plug-in releases the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We by ourselves do not collect any personal data via social plug-ins or by using them.
It is outside of our influence what data are collected by an activated plug-in and how the provider makes use of it. Currently one has to start from the fact that a direct connection to the services of the provider is made and at least the IP-address and device information will be collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service provider tries to store cookies on the utilized computer. The specific data collected and its use can be obtained from the privacy notice of the respective service provider.
