Involvement of third party services and contents
It is possible that third-party contents, e.g. videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are included within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) perceive the users’ IP address, as they could not send those contents to the browser of the user in question without the IP address. Thus, the IP address is necessary for the portrayal of these contents. We endeavour only to use contents whose providers only use the IP address for providing the contents. However, we have no influence on the possibility of the third-party providers saving the IP address. To the extent that this is known to us, we inform the users about it.

Use of social plug-ins
This offer uses social plug-ins (“Plug-ins”) of the facebook.com social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins can be recognised by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or have been marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plug-in”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plug-ins can be inspected here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
When a user accesses a website of this offer which contains such a plug-in, his browser sets up a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The contents of the plug-in are transmitted directly to your browser by Facebook and integrated into the website by the browser. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the scope of the data which Facebook records with the help of this plug-in and therefore informs the users in accordance with its state of knowledge:
With the integration of the plug-in, Facebook is given the information that a user has accessed the site of the offer in question. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plug-ins, for example pressing the like button or making a comment, the information in question is transmitted directly to Facebook by your browser and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook may find out his IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data recording and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the rights and possibilities of setting in this regard for protection of the users’ private sphere can be seen from Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
