Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. Information which results from the specific device used is stored in the cookie. However, this does not mean that we immediately gain any insight into your identity. On the one hand, the use of cookies serves to make using our content a more pleasant experience for you.

These social networks are operated exclusively by third parties, some of which have their registered office outside the EU or EEA – an adequate level of data protection in accordance with §§ 4b, 4c BDSG may therefore not exist. The links are highlighted in colour on our web pages. When you call up these websites via the link, a connection is automatically established between your device (browser) and the servers of the respective social network. Through this, the information that you have visited our website is forwarded to the social network. The visit of our web pages is then assigned to your account if you are logged in to the social network via your personal user account or if you log in during your visit to our website. When you interact with browser plug-ins or links, e.g. by pressing a “Like” button or leaving a comment, this information is transmitted to the respective social network and stored there. The assignment of the data to your account can therefore be prevented by logging out of your account (of the respective social network) before visiting our websites. Alternatively, you can also prevent the respective plug-ins from loading in the first place by using an add-on for your browser, e.g. the script blocker “NoScript” ( Responsibility for a data protection compliant operation has to be guaranteed by the respective providers.
