In its decision of May 12, 1998 – 312 O 85/98 – «Liability for Links», the Regional Court (LG) of Hamburg ruled that the inclusion of links also leads to co-responsibility of the material offered via these links. This can – according to the LG – only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from these contents. We hereby expressly distance ourselves from all contents of all linked pages on our homepage and do not adopt these contents as our own. This declaration applies to all links included in this project (on this website).
Our website contains programs (plug-ins) of the social network Facebook. These are operated exclusively by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The plug-ins are identified within the scope of our website by the Facebook logo or the addition «Like».
Through this, the information that you have visited our website is forwarded to Facebook. If you are logged in to Facebook via your personal user account while visiting our website, Facebook can assign the website visit to this account. By interacting with plug-ins, e.g. by clicking the «Like» button or leaving a comment, this corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there. If you wish to prevent such data transmission, you must log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
When you visit a website of our Internet presence that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers, which in turn transmits the content of the plug-in to your browser, which then integrates it into the displayed website.
The purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook and the further processing and use of your data there, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook’s data protection information (http://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php).
Functions of the Instagram service are integrated on our pages. These functions are offered by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA. If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of our pages to your Instagram profile by clicking on the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram.
Our website uses the functions of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. Each time one of our pages containing Xing functions is accessed, a connection to Xing servers is established. As far as we are aware, no personal data is stored in this process. In particular, no IP addresses are stored or usage behaviour evaluated.
Further information on data protection and the Xing Share button can be found in the Xing data protection declaration at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.
