4. Plug-ins and tools

Google web fonts

For the uniform representation of fonts, this website uses “web fonts”, which are provided by Google. When accessing a website, your browser will load the necessary web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you use must establish a connection to the Google servers. In this way, Google finds out that our website was accessed by your IP address. Google web fonts are used to ensure a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This is a legitimate interest in terms of Art. 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, one of your computer's standard fonts will be used.

For more information regarding Google web fonts, please refer to and the Google data privacy policy:

Analysis services

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer which enable an analysis of how you use our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the case of the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, however, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within European Union member states or other states which are part of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the provider of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activity and to provide further services which are connected to the use of this website and of the internet for its operator. The IP address transferred by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data from Google. By changing your browser settings accordingly, you may prevent cookies from being stored; however, we point out that you may not have full access to all website functions in this case.

In addition, you may prevent any data created by the cookie and relating to website usage on your part (including your IP address) from being transmitted to and being processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the link 

Social plug-in networks


This website uses plug-ins provided by, a social network operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States. This plug-in can be recognised by the Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue tile/thumbs-up sign). The list and appearance of the Facebook social plug-ins can be viewed here:

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. Through the embedding of the plug-in, Facebook is informed that you have accessed the relevant web page. If you are logged on to Facebook at that time, Facebook is able to assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example, by pressing the “Like” button or leaving a comment, your device will transfer this information directly to Facebook, where it will then be stored. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out and save your IP address.

For further information on the purpose and the extent of the collection and processing of data by Facebook and on your associated rights and settings options for the protection of your private sphere, please refer to the privacy policy of Facebook :

If you are a member of Facebook and want to prevent Facebook from collecting data about your person and associating it with your saved Facebook member data, you must log out of Facebook.


Our website uses plug-ins of the YouTube website operated by Google. The operator of the website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our websites that features a YouTube plug-in, a connection with the YouTube servers is established. In this respect, the YouTube server is informed about which of our websites you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used in the interests of ensuring an appealing presentation of our online offerings. This is a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to the YouTube privacy policy at:


This website uses Google+ buttons of the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google servers.

For more information on the purpose and the extent of data collection and processing by Google and on your related rights and privacy protecting settings, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy concerning Google+ buttons at

If you have a Google+ account and want to prevent Google from collecting data about your person and associating it with your saved Google member data, you must log out of Google+. 


This website uses Twitter buttons operated by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, United States. They can be recognised by the terms “Twitter” or “Follow” in combination with a stylised blue bird. These buttons make it possible to share postings or pages of the offer with Twitter or to follow other providers on Twitter.

If a user accesses any web page which contains such a button, their browser will establish a direct connection to the Twitter servers. Twitter will directly transmit the contents of the Twitter button to the user's browser, which is why the operators have no influence on the amount of data which Twitter collects with the help of this plug-in, and therefore inform the users according to our state of knowledge.

Accordingly, they shall only store the user’s IP address and the URL of the website when clicking on the button, although this data will not be used for purposes other than button display.
