Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to present our contents correctly for various browsers as well as in attractive layout, we use script libraries and font
libraries like Google Webfonts
this website. To avoid multiple loading, Google Webfonts are transmitted into the cache of your browser. In case your browser does
not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, contents are presented in standard script.
Activating script libraries or font libraries establishes an automatic connection with the operator of a script library or font
library, with the theoretical possibility of this operator collecting data, although it is currently uncertain if this operator
indeed collects any data and if so, for what kind of purposes.
In addition, our website contains programs (plug-ins) of the social network Facebook. These are exclusively operated by Facebook Inc.,

Facebook or the add-in
. When visiting a website of our internet presence containing such a plug-in, your browser automatically
establishes a direct connection with the servers of Facebook, by which means the content of this plug-in is transmitted in turn to your
browser and embedded in the website shown. Hereby the information that you have visited our website will be forwarded to Facebook. In
case you are logged in with your personal profile at Facebook while visiting our website, Facebook is able to allocate your visit on our
website to your personal profile. By interacting with plug-ins, for instance clicking on the
button or leaving a comment,
corresponding information will be transmitted directly to Facebook and saved there. Should you wish to prevent such data transfer, you
must log out of your personal profile on Facebook before visiting our internet presence. For the purposes of data collection by Facebook
