Our websites use social plugins of the providers listed below. The plugins can

information, to the service provider and may be used by the service provider. We
prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the
service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin,
it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only through
this activation of the plugin is the detection of information and its
transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect personally
identifiable information by means of social plugins or their use.
We have no control over what data an enabled plugin collects and how it is
used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to
the services of the provider will be expanded and at least the IP address and
device-related information will be collected and used. It is also possible that
the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to
