Use of script libraries (incl. Google Webfonts)

To display our content correctly and visually appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts ( on this website. Google Webfonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If your browser does not support or blocks access to Google Webfonts, content will be displayed in a default font.

The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically establishes a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

We integrate plug-ins of the social network Facebook (address: 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) on our websites.

If you visit one of our websites with a Facebook plug-in, a direct connection is established with Facebook. We cannot control the type and extent of the data that Facebook collects, stores, and processes. Our knowledge is limited, and we can only provide you with the information we have.

Through the plug-in, Facebook is notified that you have accessed the related page of our website, even if you are not a Facebook user. In this case, Facebook may store your IP address.

If you are a Facebook member and logged in, Facebook can link your visit to our website to your user account, and the plug-in will transmit all actions, such as clicking the Like button or leaving a comment.

To prevent Facebook from collecting data about you, we recommend logging out of your Facebook account before visiting our websites. Additionally, you can block the plug-ins using browser add-ons.
