Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

If the browser does not support the Google Webfonts or prevents the access contents will be displayed in a standard font.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on several of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a site with the YouTube plugin a connection will be established to servers of YouTube. YouTube is therefore notified of which sites you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account YouTube can allocate your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by previously logging out of your YouTube account.

If a YouTube video is started the provider will use cookies which collect information about the user behaviour.

A person who has deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google-Ad-Programme, will not have to expect any such cookies either when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube also places non-personal use information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this then you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Social plugins

On our website we offer you the possibility to use so-called “social media buttons”. For the protection of your data we rely on the “Shariff” solution with the implementation. This way, these buttons are merely integrated as a graphic on the website, which includes a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking the graphic you will thus be forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective providers. If you do not click on the graphic no exchange will take place between you and the providers of the social media buttons. You can find information about the collection and use of your data in the social networks in the respective conditions of use of the corresponding providers. You can find more information relating to the Shariff solution here:

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

Google AdWords

Our website uses the Google Conversion-Tracking. If you came to our website via an advertisement placed by Google a cookie will be placed on your computer by Google Adwords. The cookie for Conversion-Tracking will be placed when a user clicks on an advertisement placed by Google. These cookies will cease to be valid after 30 days and do not serve the personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired yet we and Google can recognise that the user has clicked on the advertisement and was forwarded to this site. Each Google AdWords customer will receive a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the Conversion cookies serves to create Conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have chosen Conversion-Tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were forwarded to a site fitted with a Conversion-Tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information, with which users can be personally identified.

If you do not want to take part in the tracking you can reject the setting of a cookies that is necessary for this purpose – for example per browser setting, which generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser to the extent that cookies are blocked by the domain “”.
