A Twitter plug-in is implemented on our website. This allows content such as images, videos, text and buttons to be shared within our website. The plug-in creates a connection between your browser and the Twitter server. This enables Twitter to obtain information such as your IP address and other information about your visit through cookies that are stored on your computer and, if you are logged in to Twitter, to assign your visit to your user account.
In addition, only technically necessary cookies are used on the basis of Section 25(2) TTDSG. Technical necessity within the meaning of Section 25(2) TTDSG consists of the data protection-compliant provision of the website (“dp_cookieconsent_status”, function: consent management, storage period: one year) and the guarantee of the technical functionality of the login function (“be_typo_user”, function: recognition of logged-in persons, storage period: end of session). No information is transmitted to third parties in this regard.

In the context of users’ utilization of our presence in the social networks mentioned below, we would like to point out that personal data concerning them may also be processed by the operators of the social networks outside the European Union and outside the European Economic Area. For users, this may result in possible risks, such as difficulties in enforcing the rights of data subjects under data protection law. At the same time, however, we would like to point out that, provided the operators of the social networks support this, we will promote the conclusion of joint responsibility arrangements in accordance with Article 26 GDPR and of standard data protection clauses in accordance with Article 46(2)(c) GDPR.
The following also applies to the processing of personal data:
Categories of data processed
The categories of data processed include master data (e.g. names), contact data (e.g. email addresses), content data (e.g. text entries), usage data (e.g. interest in content) and meta and communication data (e.g. device information and IP addresses).
Purpose and legal basis of processing
Data processing, insofar as it is subject to our responsibility, is carried out for the purposes of providing information, communicating and measuring reach, as well as for marketing purposes. The operation of the social media presence results from a legitimate interest in accordance with the first sentence of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, whereby the interest in each case is derived from the aforementioned purposes.

Matomo - Web Analysis
On the basis of your consent in accordance with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG or Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DS-GVO, we use the web analysis service Matomo to improve our website. To implement a data protection-friendly application of the analysis, the open source software Matomo is operated on the servers of the responsible entity. The recognition of returning visitors to our website is carried out by means of a so-called digital fingerprint, which is only stored in anonymized form. In addition, user movements are processed in anonymized form with the help of IP addresses with browser-side user settings, so that it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about the identity of individual visitors to our website. The information is stored for a period of 18 month. For more information about the functionality of the web analytics service Matomo, please visit the website of the provider.
