Privacy Statement regarding the "Google +1-button"
The plug-in “google+1” is integrated on our website. This is provided and operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter: Google). You recognize this button by the sign “+1” on a white background.
When you visit a page of our website that contains such a button, your browser directly connects to the Google servers, which results in the fact that the contents of the plug-in is sent to your browser and is integrated into the displayed website by the browser. Thereby, the information that you have visited our website is transmitted to Google.
In case you are logged into Google Plus or Google via your personal user account when visiting our website, Google will be able to assign that website visit to that account. Through interaction with plug-ins, for example by clicking the button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is directly transferred to Google and stored there. If you want to prevent such a data transfer, you must log out under your Google Plus or Google account before visiting our website.
We have no influence on the scope and content of the data that Google collects with the button. We assume that your IP-address is also recorded and transmitted.

Privacy Statement regarding the Facebook-Share-Button
UPDATE: We are currently using a technical solution that displays the Facebook plug-in only (and only then connects to a Facebook server) when you actively click on the Facebook Share button (and it then turns blue). This is a two-click solution by Heisenberg for more safety of privacy (http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/2-Klicks-fuer-mehr-Datenschutz-1333879.html (German).
This offer uses social plugins ("plugins") provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue background or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the look of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user visits a web page of this offer, which contains such a plugin, his or her browser connects directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser which embeds it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with this plugin and therfore informs the user according to his knowledge:
By integrating the plugin Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example leave a comment or press the Like button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is none the less the possibility that Facebook finds out the user´s IP address and stores it. According to Facebook, in Germany only anonymous IP addresses are stored.
Purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, and the respective rights and ways to protect the privacy of users, can be looked up in the privacy policies of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data through this offer and link them to its member data already stored by Facebook, the user must log off from Facebook before visiting the website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social Plugins for your browser by using add-ons, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".
Privacy Statement regarding the Twitter-Button
UPDATE: We are currently using a technical solution that displays the Twitter button only (and only then connects to a Twitter server) when you actively click on the Twitter-active switch icon (and it then turns blue). This is a two-click solution by Heisenberg for more safety of privacy (http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/2-Klicks-fuer-mehr-Datenschutz-1333879.html (German).
This offer uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA, USA. They can be identified by terms such as "Twitter", "Tweet" or "Follow", in combination with a stylized blue bird. With the help of these buttons it is possible to share a contribution or page at Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.
When a user visits a web page of this internet presence, which contains such a button, the user´s browser connects directly to the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter Service buttons is transferred by Twitter directly to the user´s browser. The provider therefore has no impact on the amount of data that Twitter gathers by using this plugin and informs the user according to his knowledge. According to Twitter, the IP address of the user is only transmitted with the URL of the according website when acquiring the buttons, but not used for other purposes, other than the display of the button.
More information can be found under the privacy statement of Twitter: http://twitter.com/privacy.
