For an optimal presentation of our website (e.g. adaptation to different screen sizes, fade-in menu, input control of the contact form) we use techniques such as Javascript and CSS (cascading style sheets). You can disable the use of these techniques by making the appropriate settings in your browser. Please be aware that some areas of our website may not function properly then.

6. Social Media

This website contains links to our appearances on various social media platforms. You can recognize these by the logo of the respective social media provider. When you use our website, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the social media platforms. Only when clicking on these links, you will be forwarded to the platform of the respective social media provider and then personal data will be transmitted to the provider. By doing so, you leave our website and we have no influence on the then collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods.

If you click on such a link, the social media provider receives the information about the subpage of our website accessed by you. In addition, the data listed in the section “Collection of personal data when visiting our website” of this Privacy Policy will be transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether you have an account on this social media platform and are logged in there. If you are logged in, the data collected by the social media provider will be directly assigned to your account.

The social media provider stores the personal data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-driven design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of demand-driven advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective social media provider to exercise this right.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the social media provider, please refer to the privacy policies of these providers, which are provided below.

On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of analyzing your behavior when you are using the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider.
