However, these comment IP addresses are deleted as soon as we have read the comments. This is usually done within a few hours. We also reserve the right to delete or not publish comments. A comment always reflects the opinion of the respective author.

The follow-up comments can sometimes also be subscribed to. You will then receive a confirmation email to verify that you are the owner of the email address you entered.

Facebook / Social PlugIns

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”.

Each time you call up a web page of our Internet presence that is provided with such a plugin, the plugin causes the browser you are using to load and display the visual representation of the plugin from the Facebook server. In the process, the Facebook server is informed which particular web page of our Internet presence you are currently visiting as well as other data such as your IP address.

The plugin enables a direct connection between the user’s browser and the Facebook or Google server. In this way, Facebook or Google determine information (in particular the date and time of the website call and other browser-related information) of the user on the website. If the user clicks on the Facebook “Like” button or the Google “+1” button while logged into his Facebook account or Google account, it is also possible for Facebook or Google to associate the visit to the website with the user’s profile.

By activating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is also the possibility that Facebook collects and stores your IP address after clicking on the Facebook notice.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy.

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it to your membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes, are possible within the Facebook profile settings:

It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with extensions for your browser (add-ons for your browser e.g. “Facebook Blocker”).

By visiting the website, you expressly consent to such use of your user information.


This offer uses the buttons of the service Twitter. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognizable by terms such as “Twitter” or “Follow”, connected with a stylized blue bird. With the help of the buttons, it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

When a user calls up a web page of this website that contains such a button, his browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter button is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and informs users according to its level of knowledge. According to this, only the user’s IP address and the URL of the respective website are transmitted when the button is used, but not for any other purposes than the display of the button.

When this website is accessed, the user’s browser briefly establishes a connection to servers of XING AG (“XING”), with which the “XING Share Button” functions (in particular the calculation/display of the counter value) are provided. XING does not store any personal data of the user about the call of this offer. In particular, XING does not store IP addresses.

Users can access the current data protection information on the “XING Share Button” and supplementary information on this website:
