4. Data privacy

(1)   We secure our website and other systems by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. Despite regular checks, full protection against all risks is not possible. The site uses industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for encryption in some places. This ensures the confidentiality of your personal data over the Internet.

5. Social Plugins

(2)   This website uses social plugins from social networks. Separate privacy and liability rules apply to social networks, and in general to third-party websites.

This integration ensures that when you visit the site that contains such plugins, no connection is established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network. Clicking on one of the buttons opens a new window of your browser and calls up the page of the respective service provider on which you can (if applicable, after entering your login data), for example press the Like or Share button. For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their sites and their rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of the provider.
