Automatically collected information
If you access our website, general information which is not identity-related (for example, Internet browser used, number of visits, average duration of visit, pages viewed) is collected automatically (in other words, not through the registration process). This information is used to enhance the appeal, content, and functionality of the website. In this case as well, your information will neither be disclosed nor used for any purposes other than those specified above.
Cookies are tiny text files containing pseudonymized data which are saved on your computer via your web browser. They cannot damage your PC and do not contain any computer viruses.

As a rule, the information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, Google will truncate your IP address beforehand within the member states of the European Union or in other countries belonging to the European Economic Area.

Integration of Facebook plug-ins
We use so-called “social plug-ins” from the facebook.com network such as the “Like” button. These plug-ins are provided and maintained by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, and are clearly labeled with the Facebook logo. If you visit TERRITORY web pages that contain such a plug-in, your browser connects to the Facebook servers. Facebook transmits the plug-in content directly to your browser and displays it in our environment. Please note that we have no influence on the plug-in content.
Facebook may possibly be able to retrace your visit on our respective websites and link it to a Facebook account if you are registered with Facebook or have recently visited a Facebook website or a website containing Facebook content. If you actively use plug-ins (for example, by pressing the Like button), the relevant data is also directly transmitted from your browser to Facebook through no influence of our own. For more detailed information about the manner, purpose and scope as well as the further processing and use of your data by Facebook please visit the Facebook Data Policy, where you will also learn more about your rights and possible privacy settings for your account.
