This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses so-called 'cookies', text files which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within a Member State of the European Union or other Contracting Party of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The whole IP address will be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there only in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services relating to the website activity and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser through the use of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

10. Social plug-ins

This website uses social plug-ins ('plug-ins') provided by the Facebook social network, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ('Facebook'). These plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or by the additional text 'Social Plug-in by Facebook' or 'Facebook Social Plugin'. Please see here for an overview of Facebook-plug-ins and their look: Overview of Facebook plug-ins.

If you access a page of our website that contains a social plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. Facebook sends the content of the plug-in directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.

By integrating the plug-in, Facebook is given the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) will be transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the U.S. and stored there.

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can directly attribute your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact using the plug-ins, for example by activating the 'Like' button or entering a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on Facebook and shown to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for advertising, market research, or for the tailored design of the Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, for example, to evaluate your use of our website in relation to the advertising displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to attribute the data collected during your visit to our website to your Facebook account, you have to log out of your Facebook account before accessing our website.

For further information about the purpose and scope of data collection and about the processing and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this respect, and the settings options for protecting your privacy, please see the Facebook privacy policy (
