There are three types of cookies:

  • Targeted cookies also enhance the user experience by helping us to understand your interests

Privacy policy in respect of integration with social media services and data passed to them

This site integrates with social media services by means of icons, which you can use to share content via networks like Facebook and Twitter. In contrast to active plug-ins, which can send data to social networks automatically, these icons do not collect information about your browsing behaviour on behalf of the respective social networks.

If you choose to use the sharing feature, a panel opens showing the icons of the various social media platforms. Opening the flap does not initiate any transfer of data. Only when you click on the icons will the information which you would like to share on your personal account be passed to the social media services. It is therefore by logging in to your account on the respective social network that you allow it to collect data about you. Exactly what data is collected depends upon the privacy policy of the particular social media platform concerned.
