Data protection declaration for the use of Facebook plugins (Like button)
Plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are integrated into my site. You can identify the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on my site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit my site, the plugin establishes a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. This informs Facebook that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our site to your Facebook profile. Facebook can then assign the visit to my site to your user account. As the provider of the site we point out that I do not obtain any information on the content of the data transmitted or its use by Facebook. You can find further information on this in Facebook’s Data Use Policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign the visit to my site to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
Data protection declaration for the use of Twitter
Twitter functions are integrated into my site. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. By using Twitter and the “retweet” function, the websites you have visited are linked to your Twitter account and notified to other users. In the process data is also transmitted to Twitter.

Using the Google „+1“ button
On my website, the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (hereafter referred to as “Google”) is used. If you invoke a webpage of our Internet presence, which is provided with the “+1” button, a link is established with the Google servers in the USA, and the button is displayed on the Internet page through a notification to your browser. Here, your IP address as well as the information, as to which of our Internet sites you have visited, is forwarded to the Google server. This is independent of whether you have registered with or are logged in on Google Plus. Data is transferred even in case of users who are not registered or logged in on these sites. The “+1” button is not used to record your visits on the Internet. When displaying a “+1” button, Google does not permanently log your browser history and also does not analyse your visit to a page with “+1” button in another manner. Google saves the data of your visit for about two weeks for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured as per the individual profiles, user names or URLs, and is also not forwarded to us.
Moreover, if you are a member of Google Plus, and if your are logged in on Google Plus during the period in which you use the plugin, the information collected about your website visit is linked to your Google Plus Account and disclosed to other users. Even in case of interactions, which are possible with various Google plugins, the corresponding information about you is collected and transmitted to Google and stored there. For an overview of the different types of Google plugins, log on to: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins
If you have made your profile publically accessible in the Google Plus settings, your “+1” can be superimposed by Google as information together with your profile names and your photo in Google services, e.g. in search results or in your Google profile, or at other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. If you do not want Google to allocate the collected information directly to your Google Plus profile, you must first log out of Google Plus before visiting our site.
Other information about the collection and usage of the data by Google, about your relevant rights and options for protecting your privacy can be found in the Data Protection information of Google: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html.
You have an option to prevent downloading Google plugins by installing corresponding add-ons in your browser.
