2. Links and References

The author is not responsible for any content linked or referred to from his pages – unless he has full knowledge of illegal content and would be able to prevent visitors to his site from viewing those pages.

The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were created, no illegal content was discernible on the linked pages. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the pages linked to.

As a rule, we cannot assign this data to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources and is deleted after statistical evaluation.


These internet pages use so-called cookies in several places. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Cookies do no damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins

This website uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the text "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here:

When a user calls up one of this offer's webpages that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by Facebook and integrated into the webpage by Facebook. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to its state of knowledge:

Through the integration of its plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook data usage guidelines.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him- or herself via this offer and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".

Web statistics

The open source software Piwik is used for statistical analysis of visitor access. This is hosted in Germany and stores no IP addresses. The IP address is replaced by a "0″ in the Piwik database and encrypted before further internal processing. The use of cookies that serve to identify returning visitors and extend beyond the existing session has been dispensed with.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (Google). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
