Social Plugins

This website uses so-called social plugins of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). They can usually be recognized by the "thumbs up" sign. An overview of Facebook's social plugins can be found here:

When you access this website, a connection is established between your browser and the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it. We therefore unfortunately have neither influence nor knowledge of the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin.
By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you select (click on) the plugins, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. Even if you are not a member of Facebook, it is possible that Facebook will find out and save your IP address. According to Facebook, however, the IP address is only stored anonymously in Germany.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook along with information on rights and setting options can be found here:
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker" or the add-on "AdBlock Plus" for Firefox. Further information on this can be found at


When you visit this Instagram page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide the BSI, as the operator of the Instagram pages, with anonymized statistical information about the use of the Instagram page.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes what information Facebook receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and the settings options for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link:
The complete data policy of the Instagram service can be found here:

Facebook provides information about the use of cookies in the cookie policy for the Instagram service: We would like to point out that Facebook Ireland is able to track your user behavior (across devices for registered users) beyond the Instagram service on other websites by means of the cookies used. This applies both to those registered with the Instagram service and to those not registered there.

According to its own information, Facebook stores data until it is no longer needed to provide the services and Facebook products or until the user's account is deleted, whichever comes first. This depends on the circumstances of the individual case, in particular the type of data, why it is collected and processed and the relevant legal or operational storage requirements. You can find more information on the storage of data at


On this website we use web fonts (GoogleFonts, Adobe Typekit, or similar), i.e. fonts that may not be available on your device. For this service we use a font library. When you call up our website, web fonts are loaded from a server (Google, Adobe or similar). The IP address of the calling visitor may be transferred to the provider (e.g. Google, Adobe - Adobe Systems Inc., San Jose, California, USA).
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interests of the person responsible). The operator has a legitimate interest in a clearly legible and structured presentation of fonts and content (usability) on the website.

On the pages of our website, third-party content (e.g. YouTube videos or videos from other providers, Google Maps, RSS feeds or similar) may also be integrated. The providers of these contents usually save cookies on the user's computer. You can prevent this by adjusting your browser settings accordingly, but this may result in the content not being displayed correctly.

In addition, many (third-party) providers store the IP address of the user in order to be able to send the corresponding content to the user's browser. Unfortunately, we have no influence on the use of the IP address by the (third-party) provider.

In the event of violations of data protection laws, the person concerned has a right of complaint to the responsible supervisory authority.
