If you have not consented to the use of Matomo you prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

9. Integrating services and contents of third parties
It is possible that the contents of third parties are integrated into our online offer. This always requires that the provider of these contents (referred to in the following as the third-party provider) stores the IP addresses of the users. Without the IP address, the contents cannot be sent to the particular user’s browser. The IP address is consequently necessary to display these contents. We endeavour to use only contents whose providers use the IP addresses solely to deliver the contents. However we have no influence if the third-party provider stores the IP addresses for other purposes, such as statistical ones. Any time we are aware of such storage, we explain it to the users.
10. Linking to other websites
As the provider of our website, we are responsible for the contents of our own online offer. However, we have no influence on the compliance of the operators of websites that are linked to us with the relevant data protection regulations. We therefore accept no liability for the contents of external websites.
If you follow a hyperlink, your data will be sent to that website’s provider when you call up the external website. When you use external links and applications, the data protection guidelines of that particular provider apply. That provider is solely liable for damages resulting from incorrect or even illegal contents on its website.
11.1 General information
We appreciate your interest in our presence on the social media channels. We would like to give you an overview of what data is collected, used and stored by us on these channels and what rights you have with regard to this. Details on the social networks used by us can be found under section 11.5 of this privacy statement.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively when you visit their website, or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media channels triggers numerous data protection-related processing operations, which we would like to explain to you in more detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media channel, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, there may be occasions when your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In such circumstances, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies, which are stored on your terminal device or by collecting your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. By doing this, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.
11.2 Responsible party and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media channels, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (access to information, rectification, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Twitter).
Please note that it cannot be ruled out that the respective provider of the social media platform will use your profile and behavioural data, for example, to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. This data may be used for other purposes. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform, as it is determined by their corporate policy.
If you wish to assert your rights as a data subject against us, you can find the contact details in section 1 of this privacy statement.
If you wish to assert your rights against one of the operators of the social media platforms, please contact them directly. A list of the social media channels operated by us can be found under section 11.5 of this privacy statement.
