Social media and social plug-ins 
We also offer you extensive personal support via our pages in the social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, YouToube, Google+ and Xing). If you send an inquiry to us via one of these social media, we forward the inquiry to the responsible department. The data are exclusively used in order to answer your inquiry and are not forwarded to third parties.

To be able to get in touch with us via the social media, you have to register with this service. For this, the enterprises behind the service in question possibly record, store and use personal data. We have no influence on the nature, the scope and the processing of these data.

Further, social plug-ins are used on our website. These are:

"LIKE-Button", from Facebook 
"+1" button from Google Plus

These are offers from the American companies:

Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) 
Google Inc., (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA)

If you access a website of our Internet appearance containing such a plug-in, your browser makes a direct connection with the services of the enterprises in question. The contents of the plug-ins are transmitted directly to your browser by them and integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data which the enterprises in question record with the help of these plug-ins. We are therefore informing you in accordance with our state of knowledge:

As a result of the inclusion of the plug-ins, the enterprises in question are given the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our Internet appearance. If you have logged into one of the aforementioned enterprises, they can assign the visit to your account there. If you interact with the plug-ins, the information in question is transmitted directly to the enterprise in question by your browser and stored there. But if you do not have an account with one of the aforementioned enterprises, there is still the possibility that they can find out your IP address and store it.

So it cannot be ruled out that each visitor to our Internet appearance is detected by the aforementioned enterprises on the basis of his IP address and the URL accessed, even if he does not click on the plug-ins and has also not registered with the enterprise with a user account. Therefore, your visit to our Internet sites can possibly be traced by these enterprises.

The purpose and scope of the data recording and further processing and use of the data by these enterprises and your rights and possibilities of settings in this regard for the protection of your private sphere can be seen from the data protection information of:
