Integration of Services and content from third parties
Content from third parties as e.g. videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated within the online offer. This always presumes that the provider of this content (in the following referred to as “third party provider”) is able to view the user's IP address since the provider would otherwise not be able to send content to the user's browser. Thus, an IP address is required for the depiction of content. We strive to only use content whose providers merely use the IP address for the distribution of content. However, we have no influence on the saving of IP addresses, e.g. for statistical purposes, by third party providers. We provide clarification to users insofar as we are aware of this.

USAGE OF FACEBOOK SOCIAL PLUGINS
This offer uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugin can be viewed here. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. The browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Facebook when a user accesses the website of the offer that contains a social plugin. Facebook directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser, which integrates it in the website. The provider has no influence on the extent of data that Facebook acquires by means of the plugin and informs the user according his level of knowledge:
Facebook receives information that a user has accessed the respective offer page based on the integration of the plugin. Facebook can associate the visit to a Facebook account if the user is logged into Facebook. The respective information is directly transmitted to Facebook from your browser and saved if users interact with the plugin, e.g. by pressing the Like button or submitting a comment. Facebook may still acquire and save the user’s IP address if the user is not a member of Facebook. In Germany, only an anonymised IP address is saved according to Facebook.
The purpose and extent of data acquisition, further processing and usage of data by Facebook as well as the associated rights and settings for the protection of the user’s privacy can be viewed in the data protection notices of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
