Furthermore, they are obligated to treat the information in compliance with the statutory provisions.

The transfer of personal data to government institutions and authorities is effected as provided for by statutory provisions; for example, if legal or criminal prosecution is required in the event of attacks on our IT and network infrastructure or on the implemented technical-organisational data security concept.

Links to social networks 

Social network buttons are implemented on our website for the purpose of providing links to the social networks. By clicking on these buttons, you will first be taken to a login page of the respective social network, unless you are logged in there already. The social network receives, by transmission via the link, the URL of that website which is to be liked or recommended in the social network. You then confirm the “like” or the recommendation of our website in the social network by clicking on the appropriate button.

If you are already logged in to that particular social network, the social network will be given the ability, by your click on the button that links to the network, to collect data about you, and may identify from which website you come. This also is the case even if you do not “like” or confirm our website in the social network. Should you not agree to such data use, you may log out of the social network before you click on the social network buttons.

For further details on data protection in social networks, please refer to the privacy policy statements of the operators of the respective social networks.
