Plug-ins of the social media networks Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram may be embedded in our web pages. The associated services are provided by the companies Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc., respectively.


For an overview of the Facebook and Instagram plug-ins and their appearance, go to:


For an overview of Twitter options and their appearance, go to:


To increase the protection afforded to your data when you visit our website, these plug-ins are implemented as “2-click buttons.” This form of integration ensures that, when accessing a page from within our website containing such plug-ins, you are not automatically connected to the providers’ servers. Only if you activate the plug-ins, thus issuing a permission for data transmission, will the browser create a direct link to the providers’ servers. The content of the various plug-ins is then transmitted by the provider concerned directly to your browser and then displayed on your screen.


The plug-in tells the provider which of our website pages you have accessed. If, while viewing our website, you are logged into your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram user account, the provider is able to collate your interest, i.e., the information you are accessing, with your user account. On making use of any of the plug-in functions (e.g., clicking the “Like” button or leaving a comment), this information too will be transmitted by the browser directly to the provider for retention.


Further information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and on the rights and possibilities available to you for protecting your privacy in these circumstances can be found in the providers’ data protection/privacy notice:
