The information generated by Cookies about your use of this Website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google reserves the right to use these Cookies or the corresponding data for its own purposes, namely, to follow and investigate the use of this application, to generate reports on its activities and to pass these on to other Google services.

So-called social media plugins (“Social Media Plugins“), in particular the button/link of Instagram (a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), the Twitter button/link of Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 USA and Discord button/link of Discord Inc., 444 De Haro Street, #200, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA may be integrated on certain web pages of our Website (“Social Media Platforms“).
Social Media Plugins from other Social Media Platforms may be used on our Website (e.g., when you use the community section on our Website).
When you call up a page of our Website that contains such a Social Media Plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective Social Media Platform. The content of the Social Media Plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, the Social Media Platform operator receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our Website, even if you do not have a profile on the respective Social Media Platform or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the platform operator, which may be located in the USA, and stored there.
If you are logged in to the respective Social Media Platform, your visit to our Website can be directly assigned to your profile on the Social Media Platform. If you interact with the Social Media Plugins, for example by clicking the Instagram button, this information is also transmitted directly to a server of the platform operator and stored there.

In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our Website, the Social Media Plugins are not integrated into the page without restriction, but only using an HTML link (so-called "Shariff solution" from c't). This integration ensures that when you call up a page of our Website that contains such Social Media Plugins, no connection is established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network. If you click on one of the buttons, a new window of your browser opens and calls up the page of the respective service provider on which you can (if necessary after entering your login data) e.g. click on the Like or Share button. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their pages as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in the data protection notices of the respective providers.
In addition, you can completely prevent the loading of the Social Media Plugins with add-ons for your browser, such as the script blocker "NoScript", which can be downloaded here.

The consent is based on the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration.
