We use the technical platforms and services of the above-mentioned providers for these information services. We would like to point out that you use our appearances on social media platforms and their functions on your own responsibility.
This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).
When visiting our sites mentioned above, the providers of the social media platforms collect, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your terminal device in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the accounts, with statistical information about interaction with us.
The data collected about you in this context is processed by the platforms and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union, in particular the USA.
According to their own statements, all of the aforementioned providers maintain an appropriate level of data protection that corresponds to that of the former EU-US Privacy Shield and we have agreed the standard data protection clauses with the respective companies.
Our YouTube videos in particular are embedded in "enhanced data protection mode", which means that no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only by playing the videos the data mentioned below will be transferred. We have no influence on this data transmission.
We do not know how the social media platforms use the data resulting from your visit to our account and interaction with our postings for their own purposes, how long this data is stored and whether data is passed on to third parties. The data processing may differ depending on whether you are registered and logged in to the social network or visit the site as a non-registered and/or non-logged-in user.
When you access a post or the account, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to the provider of the social media platform.

Buttons embedded in websites enable the platforms to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your respective profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.
If you wish to avoid this, you should log out or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and restart your browser.
To exercise your privacy rights, you can contact both us or the provider of the social media platform. Insofar as one party is not responsible for responding or must receive the information from the other party, we or the provider will then forward your request to the respective partner.
